As Memorial Day approaches, I find myself reflecting on the true essence of this solemn occasion. For me, Memorial Day isn't about celebrations or barbecues. It’s about honoring the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country—those soldiers who laid down their lives so we could enjoy the freedoms we have today.

In a world where our fundamental liberties are increasingly under threat, it’s essential to remember what these heroes fought and died for. Our freedom of choice, our freedom of speech, our right to make our own medical decisions, and to raise our families according to our values—these are the very freedoms that are being challenged. These freedoms are not mere privileges; they are the bedrock of our society, secured by the sacrifices of countless soldiers who believed in the promise of liberty.

On this Memorial Day, I believe we owe it to these fallen heroes to honor their memory with somber appreciation. It's not a day for festivities but a time for deep reflection and gratitude. We must remember their courage and dedication, and acknowledge the price they paid for our freedom.

Moreover, it's a day to reaffirm our commitment to the very principles they defended. As we remember the sacrifices made, we must also join the fight to preserve our freedoms. We must stand vigilant against any attempts to erode our rights and ensure that their sacrifices were not in vain.

Let us take this Memorial Day to pause and reflect on the true cost of freedom. Let us honor these brave souls with the respect and solemnity they deserve. And let us commit ourselves to upholding the freedoms they fought so valiantly to protect.  Teach your children what Memorial Day is about ~ they deserve to know and understand it is not about an extended weekend of barbecues and celebrations, but rather honoring those who died for their freedom.

In memory of those who gave their all, let us not merely celebrate but remember, honor, and continue their fight for freedom.
