Happy Memorial Day – 2017
I’d like to take this opportunity to wish my fellow Americans a very happy Memorial Day! This is such a special holiday for me because my parents met during the chaos of WWII, and I’ve always felt blessed that even during a time of great misery, love found a way. While theirs is a storybook tale, I realize many people’s parents never returned from war, and today we honor those brave men and women of our Armed Services who’ve paid the ultimate price to ensure our freedoms are preserved for the next generations to follow.
While people may argue about the reasons and rationale behind America’s military endeavors, we must always remember the bravery and courage of those who put our most basic and cherished freedoms above their own well-being. It is through this type of selfless heroism that a great nation was forged, and while we may have our faults, America still serves as a shining beacon of hope and freedom for the rest of the world to emulate and inspire to behold for themselves.
Over the course of history, the American eagle has stood to symbolize the soaring spirit of freedom – that’s why you will find a statue of an eagle in the lobby of Market America’s headquarters. It symbolizes the very freedoms that allow us to follow our dreams and live our lives to the fullest. The freedoms that allow us to make the very most of our DASH. Let it rip, let it roar, let it out, let it SOAR!
Embrace the freedoms bestowed upon you and never forget those who gave their lives so that we may live ours to the fullest. Happy Memorial Day.
