Memorial Day

I'm hardly the first person to point this out, but this holiday isn't really about "the unofficial beginning of summer," or going to the beach, or having a barbecue, though all of those things are very nice indeed. No, it's about honoring those brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
Now, normally, I wouldn't point to a country song as an example of that because I'm not really that much of a country music fan, but I would urge everyone watch the following video and read this article about how the song was written. That is what this holiday is all about.
