Happy Memorial Day

Mount Rushmore doesn't really have anything to do with Memorial Day. But it reminds me of the great things in our nation.

Today, services will remember those who died while serving this country. The number has sadly grown in the last decade as we have actively been in two wars.

Years ago as a journalist, I remember the most recent deaths came from Vietnam. Then, the terrorists attacked us on 9/11. Now there are thousands more war dead added to the monuments across the country.

Memorial Day is often used to remember those who have served or are serving our nation. I know that's not the holiday's intention, but it never hurts to thank those who serve or have served.

Enjoy the day. We can thank all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our ability to enjoy it.
