Happy Memorial Day! I know today is filled with places to go and people to see, so I’ll keep this short.

Today is about family, friends, and enjoying a day off, but it’s also about those who fought to make days like today possible.

While you’re enjoying your day keep in mind that today you can celebrate because of the freedoms they died for. That doesn’t mean you have to be a buzzkill a the barbecue, but it does give you an opportunity to honor their sacrifice.

Honor it by appreciating the rights they fought to protect, both yours and others. Honor it by respecting those who continue to serve. Honor it by remembering that our country’s greatness doesn’t come from the past, but by always looking to the future and striving to be better.

And yes, you can honor it by relaxing and enjoying the holiday surrounded by those nearest and dearest.

On that note, enjoy your holiday. May it be happy and healthy.

…just for fun:
