Today is Memorial Day in the United States. A holiday created to honor and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the military. For some, the day is marked by visiting cemeteries or sharing stories about those who are no longer with us. And for others, it is a day off work spent with family and friends.
The thing about holidays and celebrations is they are deeply meaningful to those who have a personal connection. For those who don’t have any personal connection, it tends to be just another day. Thus, the need to share the importance and meaning of the day and build bridges to create personal meaning for everyone.
