Lest we forget
May 28, 2010 - Jim Smith
Memorial Day weekend is upon us ... three days to spend with family and friends or just laying around the house relaxing and enjoying the weather, food and summer activities.
But, let's not forget why the holiday exists ... or those who have paid the price to guarantee our way of life.
Let's not forget the men and women who have donned our nation's military uniforms and put their lives on the line.
Let's not forget we owe them the respect and honor they deserve during Memorial Day.
While we are all enjoying our long weekend -- the first of the summer -- let's take the necessary time to go to one of the Memorial Day observances in our communities and pay the respect to fallen countrymen they so deserve.
There is a reason for the holiday ... let's not forget it!
