Memorial Day

By Staff | May 24, 2024

To the editor:

Memorial Day is Monday, May 27, it’s not just the unofficial start of summer; it is a day of remembrance and gratitude for the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our country and uphold the values we hold dear. It is a day to honor their courage, their selflessness, and their dedication to ensuring our freedom and safety.

As we enjoy the long weekend and gather with family and friends, let us not forget the true reason for this federal holiday. Let us take a moment to count our blessings and remember those who served and died for our nation. Their sacrifices have allowed us to express our beliefs and feelings freely and have made us feel safe and protected.

May we never forget the debt of gratitude we owe to those who have given their lives in service to our country. Let us honor their memory not just on Memorial Day, but every day.
