Not National BBQ Day

This is Memorial Day weekend. It's the "official beginning of summer" and a time when everybody seems to focus on a good time outdoors, BBQ, adult beverages and all that. Take a moment during all the festivities this weekend to remember the real reason for the holiday. If all you can do is pause and lift a cool one n remembrance then so be it.

Susie Madrak posted this picture in her annual Memorial Day post and it really touched me. Let's try and honor our heroes on this day and remember not only their sacrifices but the sacrifices of their families and loved ones. Don't forget to fly your flag.
