A day that started out as Decoration Day over the years became Memorial Day, a day to remember those in our military who gave their all to ensure that the rest of us could spend this day doing what we please. So please stop, at least for a moment, and thank those Veterans that gave their lives for this great country, the land of the free. One of my favorite phrases is: "Freedom is not free."
By the way, if you are able to read this then you should thank your teachers. If you are reading it in English, then you should thank the Veterans.
