Memorial Day is our national holiday to remember the men and women who died protecting this country in the service of the United States Armed Forces. If a member of the military died protecting this country, that member is a hero. In a society of the patriotic and the conscientious, Memorial Day would not be a day of division, politics, or ideological anomaly. This is a day set aside for this country to put divisions, politics, and ideological anomalies aside, and join together in reconciliation, if just for this one day, and pay tribute and honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their county: death. Memorial Day is a day about heroes, and those deserved of the title.
