what the true meaning of memorial day is. to some it's a time away from work, a trip down to the shore, time to be with family or simply a time to have fun. i hope we all take time to reflect on the lives that have been lost to serve and protect our country. think of the families that gave us these proud men and women. i myself, never though of joining the military. simply put, i was not brave enough. i thank all that were brave enough to grant me the freedom i have.
