Most of us have fun plans this Memorial Day weekend: grilling, going out on the lake, visiting family and friends in and out of town. Like many other three-day weekends, it's a chance to get away from the pressures and stress of work and life.
But this isn't just another three-day weekend. It's a time to reflect on what many of our American soldiers have sacrificed for our freedom. It's the ultimate sacrifice: their lives. So while we're having fun with our activities and families this weekend, let's not forget those who died for us to have the freedoms we have, or their families who carry on their legacy.
