Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day. More, importantly have a solemn, and reflective Memorial Day and remember what your veterans and currently serving military personal have done for you and your freedoms, indeed also the freedoms of others around the world. Remember their sacrifices and use the freedoms you have been given, wisely.

Enjoy your holiday. Barbecue, go to the movies, whatever it is that you personally enjoy on your holiday. But don't forget to honor the brave men and women who have sacrificed so that you may do so. Memorial Day is not something that replaces that sacrifice on a daily basis, and it should not be the only day that remembrance should occur.

You are not a Christian only on Christmas. You are not Jewish only on Hanukkah. Similarly you are not an American, you are not someone who enjoys life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness only on Memorial Day.

To all of the military the men and women of America (and my native Canada as well), Thank you.

Those two words are not sufficient, but any more would simply clutter the message.

So, I'll just say it again, but louder.
