Perspective

The owner of our company, Duke VanderArk, shared his thoughts with us yesterday about the upcoming Memorial holiday.  It seemed only right to share them with you.

 

As many of us plan to relax and spend time with family & friends this Memorial Day weekend; please take a moment to reflect and remember that this is not our personal Holiday, but rather a National Holiday, given to us, for remembering those who have fought, continue to serve and protect, and give us the freedoms to enjoy our hot dogs and Hamburgers wherever and with whomever we want to.

If you happen to be by a parade this weekend, please remember to stand up and place your hand over your heart when the veterans and the flag goes by.  It’s a small thing that doesn’t hurt much, but means so much to those who served and those that lost loved ones in service to our country.  It’s also a great example to those around and to our kids and young people.

So please enjoy the long weekend and remember those who made this weekend possible for all of us.
