It can be easy to take our freedoms for granted. We can get so accustomed to getting whatever we want, or having the ability to work for what we want. It may be too easy to forget that not everyone has been so lucky as those of us who are alive. Whatever freedom you have, is due to the sacrifices made from our veterans. Remember that. Never forget that.
If you see a veteran, take the time to simply thank them. Go to a veterans home and pay a visit. Hear their stories. Take the time to volunteer being a transport for a veteran’s hospital/doctor visits.
If you think you have it rough, listen to how one retired soldier ended up without legs. It is because they were fighting for our country and the freedoms you may be taking for granted. Remember that.
If you know of a veteran who sacrificed their lives for their country, pay homage. Show your respect.
Memorial Day is for remembering our veterans, and not ever saying this is a meaningless holiday. (I am writing this article because I read how a major company is calling this a “meaningless holiday”.) IT IS NOT.
