For me Memorial Day weekend always signified a few things. 

First, as with most younglings, it was the mark of the end of the school year for 20+ years of my life. Kinda hard to shake that thought and realizing that summer is now here. Of course there’s no summer break now, and despite that totally being the worst, i still get that tinge of excitement just thinking about all the summer fun ahead. 

Second, this weekend is all about gathering together to remember and celebrate those that aren’t with us. I know this weekend is all about the grill, the beers and the extra day off, but don’t forget what Memorial Day is really all about when it comes down to it.
