Don't forget true purpose of Memorial Day
Generations of Americans have given their lives for our country. They died so we can enjoy the freedoms many of us take for granted. They died working to preserve or win back the freedoms of other countries, so their citizens could enjoy a better quality of life. They are dying today in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Although our daily lives may not be impacted the way they were for Americans during wars of the past, it does not make the reality of war any less severe.
