    Memorial Day is one of the few holidays where I take the time to reflect about what the holiday truly stands for. Not only do we get to spend time with our families but we get to honor those brave men and women who gave up so much to defend us and our beloved country.

    This article is great. I think it is very important for people to realize that Memorial Day is not just about BBQ'ing and that we remember our fallen soldiers.
