More than simply a long 3-day weekend (with the Indianapolis 500 auto race thrown in for good measure), Memorial Day is actually … as the name implies … a day to memorialize those who gave their lives in the military. Given our ever-troubling world, you have to tip your cap to those who have paid the ultimate price to keep us safe. So be sure to drop by the cemetery this weekend to honor our brave soldiers.
Having said that, there’s really no reason to spend all 3 days at the cemetery. Hopefully you’ll also get a chance to get outside and enjoy the sunny weather (fingers crossed) and catch a baseball game, enjoy a BBQ or at least sleep in until you’re darn-well ready to get up. Enjoy (and remember).
