While celebrating this great day, remember that the holiday wasn’t created for picnics, it wasn’t created as an excuse to shoot off fireworks, and it wasn’t created so that most of us could get another day off of work.
Always remember the ordinary people who became extraordinary by leaving their families to travel far away and to put their lives and safety on the line so that we can all be free to celebrate this holiday.
Have a safe and happy holiday. And please be careful with fireworks.
Time to go to a parade to give as many veterans as I can find a handshake and a thank you.
