MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Memorial Day marks the unofficial beginning of summer. It is for many an opportunity to get to the beach, the lake, or even the back yard with family and friends. We should not, however, forget the true intention of the holiday, to honor those who have fallen to protect this country and the freedoms that we have.

Thousands upon thousands of men and women have given their lives so we can live safely and proudly in the greatest country there is... many of them from right here from the River Region.

So as you are out enjoying what looks to be a beautiful weekend, take a moment in between the eating and drinking and say a quick prayer of thanks for those that helped to make it possible.

Have a happy and safe Memorial Day from all of us here at WSFA 12 News.

    I usually am the first to say no to raising taxes, but I have a different view when it comes to a gasoline tax - especially here in Alabama.
