For many people Memorial Day is all about opening the swimming pool, picnics, golf and long weekends.
But Memorial Day is supposed to be a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service. Memorial Day began as Decoration Day following the Civil War. It became a national holiday in a Congressional Act in 1971.

I hope you take a moment this Memorial Day and appreciate all that you have because someone else was willing to give all that he had.
