Memorial Day honors the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. It became an official federal holiday in 1971. It is supposed to be a somber holiday of remembrance. This Memorial Day probably will be somber, but for other reasons.

Ten people – including eight students – were killed while at a school in Santa Fe, Texas, on Friday, May 18. No doubt these people were looking forward to the freedom of being out of school for the Memorial Day holiday.

People are being killed in the Triad, too. People are being shot after disputes and during disputes and are being run down while inside a building. It is beginning to feel as though the battleground is not in a foreign land, but right here where we are.

The violence appears to be escalating, even before the weather gets hot.
If that isn’t something to be somber about, what is?

Memorial Day is supposed to be a day of remembrance. Let’s remember the people who died fighting for our liberty and the people who died and their liberty was taken.
