Editorial: "Remembrance"

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

I have a question for you – do you think most American's understand the true meaning and purpose of Memorial Day? I would say that most everyone appreciates the holiday because it allows for a 3 day weekend to do whatever you desire. The problem is that is not and was not the reason for the creation of such a day.

The purpose of Memorial Days is to commemorate and pay respects to all the men and women, who have died in military service for the United States. A holiday created so that all would remember those that have given their lives so that we can all live in a free country with every right to enjoy life, with liberty and justice for all.

So I ask this of you, come Monday when you are off take a moment and out of respect and in remembrance of all those that have laid down their lives for this country and honor them in your own way and help give Memorial Day the meaning it deserves.

    The subject of legalizing marijuana is more openly discussed these days, but I sense I will be long gone before our state ever passes such legislation.
