Remembering What Memorial Day Is All About



Today was Memorial Day. Most people celebrate this as a holiday, but the real day is a day to remember the brave men and women who fought to give us our freedom.

This was the first time that I went to a Memorial Day ceremony because my good friend John Hall asked me to go.

The tears that I had through the hour-long ceremony was overwhelming. The speeches by Payson Mayor Kenny Evans, Police Chief Don Engler and Payson Fire Chief Marty deMasi and everyone else was great.

Please remember that Memorial Day is not a holiday it is a day to remember.
