I've been reading a little about the history of Memorial Day.
Memorial Day History mentions that having Memorial Day on a Monday so people could have a three-day weekend has weakened the impact of Memorial Day because people will focus on having a three-day weekend instead of remembering the people who died to keep us free. I have to admit I feel that pull.
So I welcome this thread so that we remember the real reason for Memorial Day. I am thankful for the men and women who have put themselves in harm's way, for their families left behind, and for those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country - whatever country that happens to be.
