(Victor Valley)– For many, Memorial Day weekend is kick-off of the summer season — a time devoted to barbecues, picnics and family gatherings.
There is nothing wrong with that; we all want to relax and enjoy time with our loved ones. However, this Monday let us not forget the profound significance of the Memorial Day holiday: it is a day to remember, honor and mourn the brave men and women who gave their lives while serving in our nation’s armed forces.
As we enjoy the privilege of living freely in this great nation, we should recall that this freedom has been paid for by the ultimate sacrifice of many who came before us. We owe them a debt of gratitude.
We wish you all a wonderful holiday weekend.
