This Amazing Photo Perfectly Captures The Meaning Of Memorial Day

Memorial DayCourtesy of Sarah Palin’s Facebook page comes this powerful Memorial Day meme reminding us exactly what the day is for.

Labeled “Just in case you thought Memorial Day was another excuse to get drunk or cook out,” the image shows a young widow with her baby lying on the ground next to the tombstone of her husband. It’s a heartbreaking scene that highlights the families left behind when their loved ones sacrifice their lives for our country.

Too many people take advantage of the day off without giving a thought to what the holiday is all about.

Please remember the true meaning of Memorial Day and honor those who paid the ultimate price for the freedoms we enjoy.
