What would you consider worthy of giving your life for? For those of us not in active Military duty or in a profession that is life-threatening, perhaps the question changes a bit and becomes, what are you so passionate about that you would sacrifice everything you are for?
For most, this is the beginning of a 3 day weekend. Many people will take a trip, go somewhere to rejuvenate their minds and bodies, have a picnic, perhaps burn something out on the grill and relax with an adult beverage of sorts. It is hard to think of a vacation day as being one that commemorates those who died in battle serving others.
This weekend, please remember all the men and women who filled their days with purpose and dedicated their lives in service to a higher cause, who were passionate in their beliefs, and paid the ultimate price by leaving only their names on grave markers adorned with the flag.
