What is the REAL meaning for Memorial Day? Every Memorial Day we get a long weekend, spend time with friends and family, BBQ’s and take boat rides, but forget so often what this day is REALLY for. On Memorial Day, we need to remember and give thanks to all the men and women in the military who have sacrificed and lost their lives to protect us. It is truly because of them that we can even have lives to celebrate! What did you think of this heartwarming video?
