Many see it as the unofficial start of the summer vacation season.
I think the Sunday that falls in this three-day holiday is a great time to remember why we celebrate Memorial Day--to remember and honor those who died in service to our country.
Many visit the nearest Veteran's Cemetery and place flowers and wreaths there.
I know everyone's life is super busy, but please take a moment to honor those who paid the ultimate price in service. If you can't visit a Veteran's Cemetery or patients in a VA hospital, then make a donation to a veterans' organization like Wounded Warrior. If you see a man or woman in uniform, thank them for their service.
Teach your children why we have a Memorial Day. Start a family observance of doing something to honor veterans as well as having a big family party.
