While we all try to seek a little normalcy in these times of COVID-19, I hope each and every one of you are able to enjoy today with someone close to you. While normally we would be all getting together for celebrations and parades. Let us not forget why we celebrate on Memorial Day. For today, it’s customary to spend time remembering and honoring the countless veterans who have served the United States throughout the country’s history.
Memorial Day commemorates the men and women who died while in the military service of their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle. In other words, the purpose of Memorial Day is to memorialize the veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. We spend time remembering those who lost their lives and could not come home, reflecting on their service and why we have the luxury and freedom that we enjoy today. We might consider how we can support and safeguard their grieving families and loved ones who are left behind.
Stay blessed! For today we pop smoke for those brothers and sisters who couldn’t return home.
