We wish you all a very happy and meaningful Memorial Day. Please take some time this weekend to reflect on the meaning of the day and to thank those brave Americans who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
According to a story on CNN last year, when children were asked what Memorial Day means, they said that's when the swimming pool opens.
While those children are right, public pools often open on Memorial Day weekend, we can never allow Memorial Day to mean just a nice excuse to be off of work and having cook outs with our families. We enjoy the freedom to do this because of the ultimate sacrifice made by so many who have served in the armed forces.
In addition to those who have fallen, please also keep in your thoughts and prayers those brave Americans (and their families) who are currently serving our country, particularly overseas in the War on Terror.  Have a great day.  Thank you.

I always appreciate your comments on these special days. In a country so divided politically, we need to remember that we're all on the same team, and to be grateful for those who fight the battles for us. Thank you all for your own service. And thank you for reminding us that we are the most fortunate nation, because of our defenders.
