If you know me, you know I love a good deal. Now I'm not an "Extreme Coupon-er" and I'm far from that. However, I make it a game for myself to see how much I can save (it's fun, try it).
Now on the other hand, I love great advertising. I know it's not right to judge, but when I see an ad I am very quick to form an opinion. I guess that's why this blog is being written right now. If you don't know, it's Memorial Day Weekend and today is actually Memorial Day. It's the day that we celebrate to get a king size mattress for the price of a full, the day you buy a couch and a love seat to get a coffee table and lamp for free and don't forget you can buy a new car with $0 down and no payments until next year.
This is what today is about, right? The day you can get Ashley Furniture for IKEA prices. At least that's what we see when we are driving down the street... this is WRONG.
Today is a holiday that shouldn't be celebrated just today. This is something that we should honor every single day. If it wasn't for the men and women that have paid the ultimate sacrifice and the one's out there today fighting for our freedom, we wouldn't be able to enjoy the lives we live today. I wouldn't be able to sit here and write this blog in a coffee shop, you wouldn't be able speak your mind freely, worship the way you want, and live the life you live, the way you live it.
I would just like to thank all that have ever served our country past, present and the one's that will serve. I know it may not mean much coming from the random guy writing this, but know that you appreciated. You and your families are in my prayers.
