Memorial Day is a day for solemn remembrance on which those who died in active military service are remembered.
Yes, we should always remember those important in keeping us protected from the armed services. Everyday should be a day to give a service man/woman thanks, a nod of appreciation, even extra consideration.
But, today is for those who gave their lives – especially during duty. Those who served our country for our freedoms who are not with us any longer. THAT is what MEMORIAL DAY is intended for – REMEMBRANCE.
NO fancy pictures to announce Memorial Day Weekend’s promotions today. New England’s casinos in my opinion are not presenting promotions with the significance of the day. Yes, it’s the beginning of summer, I get that. But shouldn’t we place a greater emphasis on the day, somehow.
Let’s not be totally selfish today about the unofficial start to the summer season. Remember those who fought for your chance to start your summer today with the freedoms you have.
