Memorial Day we typically spend with family and friends. We go camping or have cookouts. Let’s all make sure we remember why we have Memorial Day.
In between our hamburgers and smores, thank and honor all the people who served our country. Let’s not waste the bounty we have. The bounty we have because of soldiers who gave up so much for our country.
Patriotism is more than waving a flag. It means preserving our lands and natural resources. While we celebrate and honor today, also reduce the waste that burdens the countries landfills. Keep plastic out of our beautiful landscape and waterways. Work to reduce toxic chemicals that pollute our amazing land, water and sky.
We owe it to the men and women that defended this country, and gave their lives for this country. We owe it to our children and grandchildren. Be patriotic and reduce, reuse and recycle.
