Memorial Day is about remembering really special people.
Memorial Day is not about cookouts, going to the beach and just taking it easy. It was never suppose to be about trivial things like that and it still isn't. American soldiers who died on American soil and abroad defending America and it's interests should always be front and center on this day. It takes a special person to severe their country. It takes an extraordinary person of bravery and valor to lay down his or her life for it. That is what this day is about. It's a day to remember "extraordinary people" and to say thanks.
