Freedom Isn’t Free

Next Monday, Americans celebrate Memorial Day.
We take advantage of the long weekend and coast-to-coast gorgeous weather to kick off the grilling season.

The original purpose of Memorial Day was to commemorate fallen Union and Confederate soldiers in the American Civil War. Today, the holiday honors all Americans who have died in all wars.

(Veterans Day honors all Americans who have ever served in the armed forces.)

So in between the hamburgers and fireworks, take a moment to remember the men and women of our armed forces who put themselves in harm’s way so that we may enjoy the freedoms our country was founded upon.

When you pause to reflect and give thanks for these devoted men and women, remember that our freedoms are not free.
