PoV: The True Meaning Behind Memorial Day

05.28.12 5 years ago 10 Comments

Memorial Day Weekend is enjoyable for a variety of reasons. The extra day off work. The cookouts. The endless liquor. The extra day off work to get drunk at cookouts which have an endless supply of liquor. Yet, let us all not forget the actual meaning for the holiday. Whether or not a person agrees with America’s decision to be so active abroad, at least take today to show respect to any member of the armed services.

Putting your life on the line for millions of people you’ll never meet is a sacrifice which shouldn’t be underestimated. God bless anyone who has given their lives in the name of protecting this country because Lord knows I don’t have that type of courage. Salute. You are appreciated, even if we don’t say it everyday.
