Tribute or Trivial - What Are Your Plans For Memorial Day Weekend?

Matcha Design - Friday, May 24, 2013

What are your plans this Memorial Day weekend? For some, Memorial Day is only about shopping sales, BBQ dinners and an extra day to sleep in; while its true meaning of honoring the men and women who have died while serving in the military has been unfortunately overlooked. Their ultimate sacrifice deserves respect, not an all day shopping trip for new patio furniture.


Honoring fallen soldiers, combined with the tornado disasters in our home state of Oklahoma, has made for a sobering week. We are thankful we did not get hit by this week's tornado, and our prayers are with the families impacted. Our thoughts are also with those who have given their lives for their country. Expressing our gratitude for their military service and compassion for the tornado victims is beyond words, and both remind us:

  1. You cannot always predict what is going to happen in life.
  2. It takes time to love one another.
  3. Don't ever take things for granted: family, friends, clients, business and more.
  4. Every day is an opportunity to make a difference.

For this Memorial Day, take time to honor those who have given so much for your country. Post a tribute video to your social media accounts, attend a Memorial Day service in your city, or do what ever possible to express your respect and honor. 

Have a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day!
