Today is Memorial Day here in the US. First and foremost, it’s a day to remember and honor those who have lost their lives serving our country in the military. Beyond just remembering and honoring, there are many ways to help the families of fallen soldiers. Donating to organizations like TAPS and Children of Fallen Soldiers as well as many other organizations that help those left behind is a good way to honor those who have made the sacrifice.
Memorial Day is also the ‘unofficial official’ start of summer in the US and a lot of people celebrate today by going to the pool, having cookouts and parties, and enjoying a day off work. Unfortunately some of us still have to go to work, like me, but I’m planning on jumping in the pool when I come home!
Wherever you are today, have a great holiday, or a great Monday!
