I didn’t trade today in observance of the upcoming holiday. Besides, most people are probably headed out to the Hamptons or the lakeside towns out in Chicago. The wife will be getting out of work early so it’ll just be us as I fire up dinner on the grill.
Memorial Day, outside of Christmas, Easter & Thanksgiving is the most important holiday to me and this is something I will impress upon my children. It means everything that the freedoms I enjoy, and many times take for granted, were paid for in blood by people whose level of moral fiber I will never be able to approach.
