This Memorial Day has a little extra meaning for those of us that live in Las Vegas. It’s the first memorial day since the tragedy that happened on the strip in Las Vegas. The above photo is a memorial that’s been set up for the victims of the tragedy about 1/2 a mile from my house. It’s a stark reminder of an enormous tragedy. However, on Memorial Day it’s also a reminder of the thousands who have given their lives for the freedoms we do enjoy. I’m grateful for their sacrifice and appreciate them and all those who have passed on in defending freedom.

I hope everyone has an enjoyable Memorial Day and slows down enough to hug their family and friends and let them know how much you love them.
