Today’s editorial in the Prescott Daily Courier is about the meaning of Memorial Day. I think Tim Wiederaenders got it just right:
This weekend is not about automobile races, such as the Indianapolis 500 or the Prescott Valley Grand Prix (held Saturday and Sunday); trips to the ocean or camping in the mountains; or even a barbecue.
It is about those who gave all so we could enjoy those things.
While you are flipping a burger, cracking open a cold one, cheering on your favorite driver (amazing race Sunday, huh?!) or just hanging out with friends and family, please pause for a moment and remember those who made it possible.
Sometimes I agree with the paper’s editorial opinion, sometimes not. This one is worth a read.
