In the States, we are celebrating Memorial Day today, a day to honor the fallen men and women who have died while serving our country in the military. We thank you for your service, and for the ultimate sacrifice. We owe our daily freedoms to you, and those who have served beside you.
Normally we spend this day gathered with family and friends for a BBQ, celebrating the unofficial kickoff to summer. This year, of course, is different. We won’t be going anywhere with big groups of people today. Our office is closed today, so I am off duty from work, and I think I’ll also take off from doing any chores that are leftover from the weekend. I think I will do some gardening, and later my mom and I will cook burgers for dinner (well, she’ll cook them and I’ll happily eat one).
