Do you take things for granted? There’s a natural tendency to do so. Today is Memorial Day in the United States. This holiday pays tribute to the courageous soldiers who lost their lives to protect the freedom that Americans enjoy.
Unfortunately this time of remembrance and respect sometimes gets lost and people don’t remember the ultimate sacrifices that these brave soldiers made.
Family vacations, Memorial Day sales in retail stores, going down the seashore, and barbeques symbolize the beginning of summer. It’s a shame that something as important as the true spirit of Memorial Day gets taken for granted.
I’d like to acknowledge the brave veterans who sacrificed their lives so others could live better ones. Thank you soldiers for your service! I’d also like to offer my condolences to the surviving family members and friends.
Can you think of other things that you take for granted? I’m interested in any thoughts or comments that you have.
