memorial day weekend

two of my brothers flew up to DC this weekend to visit arlington national cemetery.
have you ever been? this is a sacred place.
i wish i could be there with them.

just like many holidays,  i believe the true meaning of memorial day is slowly being forgotten.
so among the pool parties and BBQ's, let's stop and observe the real reason we get this day off work.
to remember our fallen. their sacrifice for our freedom.
let's enjoy our freedom, with humility, so their lives are not in vain.
and let's never forget.

i love you mark.
and all the men and women buried around you.
