The True Meaning of Memorial Day

*Reblogged from my initial post on Sisterhood of Suspense

In addition to the picnics, sporting events, and a three-day weekend, Memorial Day is a time to remember the brave men and women who died serving our nation and its values.

To show my appreciation for those who risked all ensuring our freedom, I collected a few inspiring quotes that highlight the true meaning of Memorial Day. The pictures are from my trip to Washington D.C. and one I will never forget.
