Remembering the True Meaning of Memorial Day

As everyone celebrate this Memorial Day weekend, please take the time to remember the true meaning of Memorial Day. It is not about picnics, barbecues, or sport games, but the honoring the over one million men and women who have given their lives to make this country possible and what it is. They are the true heroes. As Abraham Lincoln said in the Gettysburg address.

"that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
