Take a moment to remember and thank those who make this day possible

Memorial Day is a day to remember why we have what we have.

Though Rattling Chains is a website that is read in countries around the world, we’re based in the United States and the bulk of our readership is from the USA.

Today is Memorial Day.

Remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice to defend our country.

Many people will have this day off. Some will watch parades, go to cookouts, play disc golf or whatever else.

While you enjoy this extra day, please remember those who made this day possible — the men and women who have fought to protect our freedoms.

This is not a political post. No matter your thoughts about government, wars or whatever else, those who serve in the military protect your right to express yourself as you see fit.

With that in mind, we should take a moment to reflect, remember and celebrate those who have fought — and continue — to defend what we have.

So if you are out playing disc golf today, take a moment to reflect. If you see someone from the military, thank them. This is a day when it should be about that, not about the state of the country or the world.

We’ll be back tomorrow with the poll of the week. For those who have the day off, please enjoy — and remember.
