Memorial Day is a chance to honor our lost soldiers who served to protect us and make this country great. If it wasn’t for their sacrifice, we would not have the freedoms we have today and not live in one of the greatest countries on Earth (despite our many problems).
Please remember why you have the day off from school & work. It is not to grill out and hang out by the pool. It is to remember those who have died and those families who had to sacrifice so much so you can grill out and hang out by the pool.
In honor of our lost soldiers, here is a playlist just for them.
