Memorial Day

As a child it was a holiday and therefore not a school day. I did not understand the true reason for Memorial Day.

As an adult it is no longer a holiday, but a day to remember those that have given the ultimate sacrifice. Those people who joined and served in the United States armed forces and to never return back home safely to their loved ones.

As an adult it is no longer a holiday, but a day to remember those that continue to give the ultimate sacrifice. Those people who joined and continue to serve in the United States armed forces and have yet to return back home safely to their loved ones.

As an adult it is no longer a holiday, but a day to remember my son who gives the ultimate sacrifice. My son who joined and continues to serve in the United States armed forces and has yet to return back home to his loved ones.

As an adult it is no longer a holiday, but a day to remember those that grieve for those that gave the ultimate sacrifice. Those people that grieve and continue to remember those they lost in the United States armed forces and never returned back home to them, their loved ones.
