I sat down to write a post about how thrilled I was to have another 3 day weekend, a Monday that could be spent at the beach instead of the office. (this is something that normally excites me to the point that I want to jump around the room singing and dancing)
But I feel its in poor taste to celebrate being able to sleep in when what I should be doing is acknowledging what this holiday is truly about- remembering and honoring those who have died while serving in our military. Men and woman who made tremendous sacrifices and were brave enough to die for their country.
Enjoy the beer, the BBQ’s and the unofficial start to summer, but let’s not forget that freedom, after all, is not free.
