As we celebrate Veterans Day Monday, we need to stop and try to understand what the holiday is all about.

Too many times we forget the true reason for Veterans Day, and we instead choose to just look at it as a day off work or a day out of school.

But Veterans Day is about celebrating the lives of those who sacrificed to ensure that we have all the freedoms that we have today, and remembering those who paid the ultimate price in defense of our freedoms.

Let’s always try to remember the real reason for this holiday, and let’s always try to say thank you to those who gave up so much for each one of us.

It’s the least we can do for those who did the most they could.
