Every year when a holiday like Memorial Day comes around, I post a reflection of its meaning and while I have never served, I know many who have and appreciate their service and sacrifice.
Even though summer is still a few weeks away, Memorial Day is known as the unofficial start of summer in the United States. That is exciting given the past 15 months we have had here and around the world. Covid has taken its toll on many and while we remember the true meaning of Memorial Day and those who have fallen serving our country to keep our country free, we need to remember the sacrifices of all the frontline workers trying to save others, many who have lost their lives during this pandemic that has taken the lives of thousands of people here and around the world.
We need to remember the doctors, nurses, paramedics, police and firefighters that have died in the line of service during this crisis. We should remember other frontline workers who were there for us when we needed them and lost their lives due the effects of Covid. Many have served others to make sure we were able to survive. This is something with all the chaos in the world we should keep in mind. Memorial Day is to remember those who have served and sacrificed their lives in the line of duty, so when you are enjoying your barbeque and grilling outdoors on this Memorial Day, please remember the freedoms we have and how lucky we are given the sacrifices made by many others. Without their sacrifices, we may not have the freedoms we have.
