Memorial Day 2018 - Honoring America's Fallen Heroes
Memorial Day isn't just an opportunity for long weekend, a barbecue or a beach trip. It's a day honoring soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those brave souls who gave everything for us to enjoy our freedoms. Monday, we pay homage to all who didn’t come home, as we should each and every day of our lives. This is a solemn time to contemplate the price of our freedom that many paid for US - the ultimate price.
“Those who have long enjoyed such privileges as we enjoy forget in time that men have died to win them.” —Franklin D. Roosevelt
Friends of mine and residents on one of my favorite streets in Charlotte, always prepare their home the week before their big Memorial Day gathering at their home. The century-old hardwoods, flowering shrubs and greenery surrounding the gorgeous home are a perfect back-drop for the over-sized American flag.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Please take the time to pause and reflect the true meaning of this holiday. Honor the legacy of those who served and sacrificed everything, by setting aside time to pause and reflect - may we never forget, freedom isn't free..
