Memorial Day, what does it mean to you? To me, it always meant we were officially of school, dad was off from work and would grill hamburgers and my family would come over for dinner. It always seemed like the real start of summer. A lot of the traditions are the same now that I have a family of my own but now I truly understand what it is we are supposed to remember on that day. It is a day to remember those who sacrificed and gave their life for our country, for my freedom. It is my prayer that we, as a nation, never forget those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our beloved nation.
