Please don’t “sell out” Memorial Day

Many will “celebrate” Memorial Day as any other holiday, with barbecues, beer, and commercial sales at local malls. Simply put, they have sold out Memorial Day.

This weekend, please visit a local cemetery, find a marker for any veteran, and reflect on their service to this great nation.

“Your silent tents of green
We deck with fragrant flowers;
Yours has the suffering been,
The memory shall be ours.”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
