It is easy to say: Happy Memorial Day, without giving much thought to what that date actually stands for. Yet, there is so much more to this day than sales, picnics and the day off. Sure, there is nothing wrong with getting to celebrate all that with your loved ones, but it is also important to remember the reason behind each holiday. Once we truly stop and ponder what that day actually means, we realize it isn’t such a happy day, but it is a very important one. It is a date to think, to reflect, and to honor those who have served. It is a day for families that have lost their loved ones to the war, and for their nation, to feel proud and commemorate. It is a day to realize how lucky we are that many are willing to give up their lives for ours.
Memorial Day is a day to honor and remember all those who have served the U.S. and to acknowledge their efforts, their bravery and the lives that have been rendered to this noble cause. At Acxess Spring we recognize that Memorial day is both a day to celebrate those who fought and continue to fight, and commemorate those who died while serving.
Memorial Day is a special day at Acxess Spring because we know there are members in your family as well as in our team, who have loved ones serving or that have served, and we don’t take this lightly. We know how necessary it is for their families to mourn but also how important it is that we feel blessed and be thankful that such men and women lived and had the devotion to show their love, not just for their families, but for their entire country. We may not know them all but we owe them all.
May we never forget that freedom isn't free. May we always remember our heroes, and may we too, learn to make the necessary small sacrifices in our everyday lives. May we carry out the minor acts of courage when we face evil, so that we too can make our country better, one small action at a time.
