Memorial Day


A whole group of people who shall remain nameless are getting a little ahead of themselves and keep posting on facebook about how fun Labor Day weekend was. Well, I'm glad they had fun and all, and maybe it's just the military wife in me, but are people really that ignorant? HELLO it was Memorial Day dumbasses! I bet they never even thought for a second about all the people who lost their lives for our freedom. Instead they partied it up and celebrated the beginning of summer with a holiday that actually symbolizes the end of summer. Way to go. Someone's son/daughter, mother/father, brother/sister died so you can go out and party because freedom isn't free. This actually really gets under my skin.

Honestly, how do you feel about this? Let me know!

So I just want to say Thank You to all the men and women who have served and who are currently serving our country! Some people don't believe in it or appreciate it, but I do. And I know I'll sleep peacefully tonight knowing the U.S. Military is fighting for my safety and my freedom!

Well, I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day! <3

Did you know that Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day. Because it was a day that people would decorate the graves for the fallen soldiers. Random piece of information my mom told me while we were at a Memorial Day ceremony.

I did know it used to be called Decoration Day but I wasn't sure exactly why. That's pretty cool!
