While you are over your grill, at the pool, lake, coast, at the store taking advantage of a sale or just enjoying time with family this weekend, take a moment to reflect and remember why.

Memorial Day is a day to remember and honor those who died while on active duty during a war.

It has been a tough week in Texas, in America. It seems like everyone is in need of a long weekend. Enjoy the time with your family and friends. I just ask that you take a moment for the why – those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
