Remember...

Today is a day of remembrance for those we've lost. Although the holiday originally started out as a day to remember those lost in service to our country, it has morphed into a day where we remember all that we've lost.

But I still think it is important to remember, first and foremost, those who lost their lives in service to our country. Without their sacrifice, we would not enjoy many of the freedoms we have today. No matter your political views or your stance on where the country is today, those who served in America's armed forces deserve our thanks.

On this day, we are usually consumed with picnics, boating, skiing, fishing, and spending time with our family and friends. And we should do this because we are enjoying our freedoms. But it is also imperative to remember our veterans on this day, a day dedicated to them, because without them, we would not have these freedoms.

So today, in the midst of your festivities, take a moment to reflect on the men and women who sacrificed their lives for our country. Remember...
