As the kick-off of summer, the Memorial Day weekend brings lots of activity to our lives. Here in Jackson, the 100-mile yard sale begins, bringing lots of people into town up and down Highway 25. Many events detract from the intended purpose of Memorial Day, which is to honor our fallen military and service people.
Please take time to thank those who are serving to protect our citizens and freedoms. Honor fallen servicemen by thanking their families who suffer from their loss.
As we prepare for the barbecues and the yard sales, as we gather with family and friends, take a few moments to strengthen our cultural fabric by discussing the meaning of our Memorial Day celebrations.
As always, stay safe.
