Today is Memorial Day, which commemorates the men and women who died while in the military service of their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle.
In other words, the purpose of Memorial Day is to memorialize the veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. We spend time remembering those who lost their lives and could not come home, reflecting on their service and why we have the luxury and freedom that we enjoy today. We might consider how we can support and safeguard their grieving families and loved ones who are left behind.
I ask you to remember that as your day unfolds.
