For those we have lost, let us not forget

and for those who are serving, let us thank. Remember that Memorial Day is more than cookouts on a day off from work. Visit a grave, attend a service, light a candle, or at the very least, take a few minutes to hold the memory of someone you loved in your heart during this day. I'm writing this as the holiday is being observed, yet let us not forget the original date is May 30th, and we should never have moved it just to get another three-day weekend, in my opinion. Memorial Day is about more than the start of the summer sale season. It's about service and sacrifice, and loved ones lost and remembered.
