Today, We Remember the Fallen

May 25, 2015

Today is Memorial Day in the United States of America. 

Memorial Day is a holiday that the United States observes every last Monday of May. On this day, we remember those who died while serving in the armed forces. May they rest in peace and the fruits of their sacrifices continue to flourish.

This day also marks the kick off of most summer activities, specially trips to the beach and backyard barbecues. 
As we remember the fallen, we also celebrate the gift of freedom that they fought for and lost their lives for.
