A holiday to give us a 3 day weekend.
I hear this much more than...A Day in which to honor our fallen hero's who gave all they had for the rest of us.
As a person who's family has paid this sacrifice so may times over the different wars and conflicts, I for one am saddened.
It seems that all around us the meaning is touched lightly on and then if goes into a full blown holiday of fun.
OK, I won't kill your fun, but PLEASE, take 5 minutes to thank those that gave you this day with their lives.
