Memorial Day

I always find it strange when people say (or write), "Happy Memorial Day!" Today is a day to remember our service men and women who died, giving the ultimate sacrifice for our country. While it's not completely somber, I'm not sure it deserves a "Happy" in front of it, like it's Thanksgiving or Easter.

Whether or not you think today is "Happy", please don't thank a veteran for their service. That's what Veteran's Day is for. Take a moment and feel gratitude for all the soldiers who died so you can have this three day weekend, full of family, friends and BBQ's.

Fallen service men and women, I'm so eternally grateful for you.


  1. I totally agree. I am so thankful for all of the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom and safety. - Svetlana @ Life with a Side of Wine
