As a child, growing up in Oklahoma, I knew that Memorial Day meant that school was out and it was sweet summer time! By the same token, 4th of July meant that summer was half way over. Sadly, Labor Day meant that summer was over and it was time to put my shoes back on and head to school. If you can’t tell, Summer is my favorite season of all!
Today, Memorial Day not only signals the beginning of Summer, but is a reminder of all of the brave men and women who have died serving in our nations armed forces. So what better reason to celebrate?
