Today is not about BBQ’s and getting intoxicated.
Today is not about pools opening for the season.
Today is not about what special deal you can get at the car dealership, store, or anywhere else.
Today is not about carnivals and fireworks.
Today is not just an extra day off from school or work.
Today IS the day that is meant to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for us and our country.
There are no words that can be said to show just how much their sacrifices mean.
Though we do set aside this one day every year to honor those who have fought and died for us, it is something that should be remembered every day.
Today at 3pm, local time, is the National Moment of Remembrance. Where everything stops and we take a minute in silence as we remember and pay tribute to those who gave their lives for ours.
Google will also hold a special tribute at 3pm where you can listen to Taps play.
Because of the brave, we are free.
