Happy Memorial Day! Don't forget what today is really all about. It's a day to remember all those who are serving and have served in the armed forces, some of whom sacrificed their lives in the service of our country. We are free because of the brave.

I was driving in this morning listening to 3 Doors Down in my car, and I think these two songs are an excellent reminder of what armed forces personnel do and sacrifice for all of us.

3 Doors Down -- "Citizen Soldiers"

3 Doors Down -- "When I'm Gone"

On a personal note: I want to say thank you to all the men and women who are serving and have served our country, as well as a thank you to their families, who give up holidays and special occasions in the name of the greater good of the country. Thank you, and god bless.
