On Memorial Day…we say “Thank You”

Memorial Day is a very meaningful holiday.  We get the opportunity to think about the ultimate sacrifice a human being can do, for his or her country and fellowmen.

It takes special persons to sacrifice their lives for the sake of all of us, so we can have “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”  Our unalienable rights.

Let’s be grateful that we have the opportunity to enjoy our freedoms, the joy of being able to partake with our families and friends in celebrating our lives.  And all because of these unselfish human beings that, as I said before, made the ultimate sacrifice.

We salute all of them, and are forever grateful for their sacrifices.

So…it was today…a special day to say “Thank You.”
