Memorial Day 2011

As we celebrate what has become a long-weekend, kick-off to summer, let us remember that the intent of Memorial Day is to honor those who have lost their lives in service toflag their country.

I found an interesting article on-line about Memorial Day, The First Memorial Day. As you take a couple of minutes on this hot and steamy day, consider that this holiday as evolved from a burial ceremony to what it is today.

As you enjoy your cook-out, pool time, beach lounging and day-off-from-work, take a couple of minutes to honor those patriots who have made the life that we enjoy and the freedoms that we have possible.

And then light up the grill and celebrate them by pulling together friends and family and enjoying this uniquely American holiday.

Happy Memorial Day to all and a heart-felt thank you to all of those service people who made the ultimate sacrifice to make this day possible.
