I know I have mentioned over and over how much I love Fridays and saying TGIF, but I must say that Friday’s before Holiday Weekends are that much better. The ghost towns are in full effect and the people who are here with me have smiles on their faces and we are united in the fact that we can’t wait for the day to be done. Talk of barbequing and lawn games are in the air. The hardest decision people are making is which lake to go to, what ice cream flavor they should have, and if one more beer is going to push them over the limit. While this weekend is going to be a lot of fun along with some games, don’t forget to take a time out and remember what Memorial Day is all about. Remember the heroes who taught us about Freedom, love of our own Country, and what United truly means. Also remember all of those who made this world a better place by just being there. Honor your Grandmas, your friend’s Grandpa, the strangers loved one who lies below the earth next to another stranger, lover, friend, wife.
Remember, they may leave this earth, but none of them will ever be forgotten. Go forth and enjoy this weekend to the fullest and take pride in who you are. One day, you will also be remembered for the great presence you had in life. Shine bright, shine often, shine for those whom you love. Shine on, my friends, shine on.
Happy Memorial Day Weekend. Enjoy every moment of it.
