Monday, Memorial Day began after the Civil War, as a way to honor the brave men and women who died in military service to the United States. For many Americans, this means acknowledging that sacrifice by celebrating their freedoms together with family and friends. This is a time to remember our fallen; it should be a somber reminder of the brave sacrifice men and women have made to keep the United States a free and just society.
