Fun Friday: Just a reminder

24 May
Remember that this weekend is not just for cookouts!

Remember that this weekend is not just for cookouts!

As we come up on Memorial Day weekend 2013, often seen as the unofficial summer kick-off weekend, many of us have plans over the long weekend that might include cookouts or gatherings with friends.

In my job as a reporter, I’ve had the honor of attending many Memorial Day remembrance ceremonies over the years, and I like to take the time to remember the reason why we have a long weekend, the reason why we have a Monday holiday here in the United States.

Although I enjoy the long weekend and I look forward to our annual traditions, I will not forget those who have died, especially those who have died defending our country, our rights and our freedom to celebrate with friends.

Enjoy the weekend and enjoy the day, and God Bless those who have gone before us as well as those who protect us now.
