Actor Matthew McConaughey’s Patriotic Message: “Remember, Respect, Learn From”

Matthew McConaughey

On Memorial Day, actor Matthew McConaughey posted a brief message calling for all his fans to take a moment and reflect on that day’s significance.

Many in Hollywood and sadly, Washington D.C., have spent an incredible amount of energy running away from the flag, and find every opportunity to criticize and verbally attack this nation.

McConaughey’s throwback picture of himself many years ago, wrapped in the American flag presumably at his humble home in Texas where he grew up, is a simple reminder that our nation is a true land of opportunities.

“Remember, respect, learn from,” McConaughey’s caption read. A simple way of calling each of us to remember the journey that thousands made in the defense of American freedom, respect for those who never came home and the families who lost a loved one, and learning from the past so we can hopefully create a better future for ourselves and our posterity.
