Memorial Day and the start of summer officially begins. This week has felt a bit more like fall in my part of the world but soon the heat will return. While Memorial Day has become a long weekend for most, we need to pause to remember those who have made it possible for us to enjoy our freedom to spend time with family and friends.
The History Channel has a nice article of about Memorial Day and how it started: Memorial Day 2021: Facts, Meaning & Traditions - HISTORY.
However, you spend the holiday weekend, I hope that you can spend time remembering those ancestors who came before and served in the military. We owe them a great debt. Happy Memorial Day!
