Editorial: Memorial Day

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

I am anxiously anticipating the holiday weekend. Memorial Day has always been one of my favorite holiday weekends. It has always represented the start of the summer. When I was young it meant the end of school and the start of care free days. Now it means warmer weather and long sunny days are coming. I love the outdoors.

This week someone asked me the difference between Veterans Day and Memorial Day. I knew the answer, but it did give me the opportunity to think again about exactly what Memorial Day is. 

We should thank God every day for those that choose to spend their lives in service to keep us safe. 

Memorial Day is a special day each year to remember those that gave their lives so that we could have the freedom we enjoy. Because of those wonderful people we have the ability to agree, disagree, debate, editorialize and vote on any topic we want. 

Because of them we enjoy freedoms like no other country in the world. 

This weekend while you are enjoying a beautiful Alabama day hopefully with family and friends take a moment to remember and give thanks to all of those that died so that you could enjoy your freedom. 

Have a safe and wonderful weekend.

    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.

    I can’t begin to thank all the people in Montgomery who went out of their way to make an outsider feel at home. In only a year and a half we have made lifelong friends, friends who we would count on with our lives and our children’s lives. But it is the South, and that is what you do.
