It’s More than a Day Off – Memorial Day
Everyone looks forward to a three day weekend. We all work hard and the holiday falls at the perfect time. We're just heading into Summer. Granted, it's a great time to take the boat out on the lake. It's the perfect weekend to fire up the grill. But in the midst of all the "it's Summer" revelry, let's take a moment and think about the day itself.
Townsquare Media (our parent company) I'm proud to say is a huge supporter of our men and women in the Armed Forces. Townsquare has spearheaded an organization called "Townsquare Cares" to help families of military personnel.
More than a million men and women have given their lives in the name of freedom. Those lives were given not just for the freedom we enjoy in America. Most of those lives were given up so that people in other countries could be free.
Please take a moment over this three day weekend and give a thought or a prayer to all those men and women who gave of themselves.
It is a Memorial Day tradition to fly the flag at half-staff until noon, then raise the flag to full staff to honor those who are currently serving our country. On this Memorial Day, as with so many over the past several years, there are Americans far from home who all volunteered to serve. Let's keep them in our hearts and prayers too!
I know that more than one glass of "adult beverage" will be served up over these three days. Raise at least one of those glasses to our Armed Forces, past and present.
Have a GREAT, safe memorial day.
