Sadly, in the past I have viewed Memorial Day as a day for barbecuing and for great sales…the beginning of summer. And while those things are great, that’s not what Memorial Day is about. It is about honoring and remembering those who fought and died for our country. Today, for the first time, my family and I are going to the Virginia War Memorial for the Memorial Day Ceremony. From now on, I’m going to make an effort to focus on the reason we have a Memorial Day and I’m going to remember those who gave their lives in service to America.
