Message from Big Sir

May 31 2021

Dear fellow Sir,

Americans view Memorial Day as the unofficial start of summer…a time for fun, barbecues, and gatherings with family and friends. It is all that and more. The true purpose of the holiday is to commemorate and pay respect to those who served in the military and made the ultimate sacrifice, almost a million and a half of them in our history. Many people today have enjoyed life free from the tribulations faced by previous generations. Probably most of us enjoy the day without knowing there is a national moment of remembrance that takes place at 3:00pm local time, when all Americans are encouraged to pause for a moment of silence. This may be difficult to remember and fit into our schedules, but whatever we do, we should recognize the true meaning of the day, observe it and be grateful to the fallen.

Have a great week, and stay safe and healthy!

Your 2021 Big Sir,

Rick Harris
