Memorial Day for so many is a three day weekend, a fresh
start to summer, first day on the lake, or to a majority of TV personalities - a way to sell hot dogs, hamburgers, fresh fruits and backyard grills. Enjoy this time spent with your family. Enjoy the freedom to shop, cook, and relax without the stress of work on a Monday. However, while you are enjoying this freedom and relaxation - I hope you will at least take a moment to remember why we have this freedom and who sacrificed to give you this freedom.
A little background you might not know - and in doing research for this piece, I'm not quite sure we even teach this in our classrooms anymore.
