Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day. It is a day to recognize and remember those who have died while serving their country. On this day, many graves will be decorated with flags and flowers as a way to honor those who have given their lives to protect our freedom. Memorial Day serves as a reminder of the high price of that freedom. The sacrifices our military members make is awe-inspiring, as are the sacrifices of their families. To all current and former service members and their families:
It’s Veterans Day here in the United States. On this day, we are reminded of the sacrifice of those who have served in our country’s military. To all veterans out there, I say, thank you.
Thank you for serving your country with honor. Thank you for the sacrifices you have made to keep people like me safe. Thank you for giving so freely of yourself to protect your country.
You are appreciated.
