In all the goings-on of the Memorial Day weekend, sometimes we really do forget the real reason behind the holiday, and day off for some.
In all the events of your day, remember to take the time to pause a few moments and give honor to all the individuals that have sacraficed their life in service to our country. That is the reason for the holiday, above all the other social reasonings we have.
I would be amiss if I didn't mention to be sure to include country music in all your daily events of the day through some of the patrotic songs we have. Country music is one of the best styles of music in the world for this very thing due to the lyrical stregth in storytelling.
There is an extremely well written blog post on this very topic over on The 9513 blog:
The post includes a list of 20 songs that are very fitting for this day, and the article talks about many others as well.
I wish your Memorial Day is a very safe day and that is full of joy, yet be sure to take the time to remember and honor those the day is truly about, those that have given the ultimate sacrifice in service to our great country.
