Memorial Day weekend has been filled with laughter, frivolity and generally having a great time for many in Miami. Hundreds of thousands of folks are visiting for Hip-Hop Weekend, thousands returned from a week on the Tom Joyner Morning Show cruise. Life is grand.
But for as much as we have celebrated this weekend, many of us have forgotten the lives lost in service to this country so that we can enjoy our freedom. People in countries who will never step foot in the United States owe their freedom to the men and women in our armed forces.
So, instead of a picnic or barbecue with family and friends, I give thanks to our fallen heroes today and everyday for their ultimate sacrifice. Ashe'
