In honor of the men and women who have given their lives for this country’s freedom and liberty, we will be closed this Monday, May 26th in observance of Memorial Day.
Our nation’s soldiers remarkable sacrifices are beyond measure. Their relentless commitment to the defense of this great country and the ideals on which she was founded is the ultimate level of patriotism and it is our duty as citizens of this nation to uphold these values that they gave their lives for. We have a voice to speak our opinions because of them, we can choose to do what makes us happy because of their sacrifice, and we can create change for a better life because they gave theirs. Many times we forget the true meaning of this holiday. It is not just a three day weekend packed full of barbecues and summer sales. Memorial Day is a day to remember the costs of our freedom, to celebrate and to honor those who have protected it for our sake.
Please take a moment from your barbecues, super-saving sales, and launching of summer excitement to remember those men and women who have given their lives so that you could live yours freely.
“Who kept the faith and fought the fight; the glory theirs, the duty ours”
