In Memorium

This Memorial Day weekend I am reminded just how consumeristic the country I live in has gotten. The majority of time and effort spent seems to be on furniture sales, automobile sales or just about any other line of goods you can imagine. Many people use this weekend to travel, perhaps to see family, but often just to blow off steam at the lake. And while blowing off steam is something I consider important in this culture we have created, it's not the purpose of the weekend.

The purpose is to remember those who have fought and died for the freedom we take for granted. That's it. Please take a moment to do that, won't you?
