For Americans this week signifies the beginning of summer. Many of us throw a party, fire up the grill and commence our relaxation. Too few of us gather at cemeteries to remember the fallen soldiers. Memorial Day is about our society remembering those who fought and died so that we can enjoy our freedom of speech, to assemble, to bear arms, and to worship our god as we see fit, or not as the case maybe. We in this country enjoy an amazing freedom. This is the day we should take some time to ponder the fact that so many have died in order that we may live in freedom. This weekend pause enough to reflect on those who gave their lives for the sake of us all.
