This weekend is Memorial Day weekend here in the States. Memorial Day means many things. It means BBQ's, the start of summer, beaches, and for me as a teacher, the home stretch of the school year. But the real reason for Memorial Day, is to remember those soldiers who fought and died for our country and to preserve our rights to have BBQ's, listen to great music, and write blogs... amongst other perhaps more important freedoms. So go ahead and grill this weekend, break out the swim suits, cross another day off from the school calendar, and have fun doing it! Just remember those who fought for us to have the freedom to enjoy this weekend!
In honor of Memorial Day, check out Iron & Wine covering "Love Vigilantes" by New Order.
