Usually when folks hear Memorial Day they think of it as a day off, time at the lake, cooking out with friends and family.
True those things do happen on this day but there is so much more meaning behind Memorial Day.
Memorial Day is a day to remember the men and women who have fought for our freedoms. These freedoms range from the simple ability to have a blog all the way to allowing you to choose where your family will attend religious services.
Too many times we forget the true cost of freedom and that freedom is never free.
So on this Memorial Day I want to thank the brave men and women who gave their lives for me. I want to thank the brave men and women who today are continuing to fight for our freedoms. Lastly I want to thank the families of these servicemen and women for allowing the love of your lives to pay for my freedom.
