JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
"Not all those who wander are lost"
Memorial Day is a very special holiday in this Country. Other than our celebrations of God, this is the most important holiday as well. This Day represents a memorial of the faithful, honorable men and women that have given the ultimate sacrifice for our Country...their lives. This unfortunate number grows daily. That is important to understand, because it points out our constant battle for freedom.
We live in a day our freedom as Americans seem to be facing constant challenge from every direction. Countries, religions, agendas, extremists from all over the world, there's even a constant push within our own leaders that battle our freedom. Without the courage of the fallen, that freedom would of been lost a long time ago.
This Memorial Day, let's remember those soldiers, let's remember the patriots, but don't stop there. This Memorial Day lets honor them, and their fight that cost them so much, and gave us so much more...our freedom.
Spend time with your friends and family and take a moment as a group to stop, and appreciate what the holiday represents. Take some time out of "normal life" to do something to give back to the country that allows us this great freedom at a cost of those we lose in that fight. Get outside and see some magnificat landscape, or sunset. Breathe in the air of freedom. Do something different, do something intentional about honoring our Country's soldiers that have laid down their lives so we could live ours.
Having a day set aside to say thanks on the calendar is nice, but the fight of those that we are honoring is all in vain if we do not express, share, celebrate and love our freedom.
