We celebrated a very important holiday, Memorial Day, on Monday.
It was a day that meant different things to different people. For many, it was the unofficial start of summer, marked with vacations and cookouts. For others, it was a day of reunion, used to reconnect, reminisce and remember loved ones.
The original meaning of the one holiday we reserve for memory, though, is to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our freedom and our way of life. Those who gave their lives for our country.
