Tomorrow begins the 3-day Memorial Day weekend which is the most traveled holiday of the year and in terms of traffic accidents the most dangerous. Please make sure you check your car e.g. tires, mirrors, first aid kit, and drive like the responsible drivers I know each of you are.
While I know this holiday has been bastardized as the “unofficial first day of summer” or another day of shopping, let’s not forget the reason behind Memorial Day – to honor our war dead especially now as we are still a nation at war. If you have a family member or friend no matter how distant who made the ultimate sacrifice, call on their loved ones and if their is no one around to remember them visit their grave or take a moment to remember them.
