For many, Memorial Day weekend is a time for family gatherings, barbecues, fishing and boating.
For some, including our students, it signifies the beginning of summer.
And for others, it means a trip to the cemetery to renew the flowers on loved ones’ graves.
All of that is fine and we encourage you and your family to have a wonderful weekend.
But some time during the holiday, we ask that you take time out to think about its real purpose.
On Memorial Day we honor all of those who have given their lives for their country.
May they rest in peace, wherever their final resting place around the world.
Have a silent moment on their behalf.
