Memorial day may mark the beginning of summer and the official season for wearing whites, linen and seersucker – in the south at least – but it is also a bittersweet holiday. Many will celebrate the kickoff to summer vacations and family BBQs, but some will mourn the loss of a loved one in service to our country.
By all means, enjoy this day with your family. That is the primary reason these sacrifices were made. Please take a moment also, to reflect on that sacrifice and raise your glass to those who gave all.
