I poke fun of a lot of things on this blog. And you would think that a time like Memorial Day I would say something about the fallen soldiers in the Great Zombie War or something like that. But Memorial Day for me is too important to brush aside with a joke or a smart ass remark.
Today is the day that we set aside to honor the memories of the soldiers who have died to protect our rights and our freedoms. Not all the time do people believe in the reasons for war, or even in war itself, but Memorial Day is not about that. Young men and woman have given their lives in wars fought all over this world in order to protect their countries and the people that they serve. If there is any greater cause than protecting others to give one’s life for, I don’t know of it. And the men and women who have died in the service of their countries deserve to be honored and remembered with dignity and respect.
No matter what country you call home, chances are your lives have been affected in some way by someone who has died for your country. Chances are you know of a family who has a son or daughter who has passed away due to the horrors that are war. Or maybe it’s someone in your family. Please take an opportunity to honor their sacrifice however you can at this time. Please remember that through their sacrifice, our freedoms and our comforts can be enjoyed today.
Till Fate brings our Future…
