May 29th

It's my b-day today, I've turned the big 2 - 9: It's officially the last year that I get older. :)

However, as it turns out, this year May 29th has some extra significance. It's Memorial Day in America. On Memorial Day, which occurs on the last monday of May, Americans are reminded of those who fell for their country. I wish it was possible to meet all the men and women who've made the ultimate sacrifice for their country and ultimately the world, so that I could thank them all personally. Since it's not though, I guess it will have to suffice to simply remember their acts, and enjoy the freedoms they have bought us all.

So, I'm gonna skip out on work, go get some lunch, and then hit a round of golf with a friend. It's the right thing to do. :)
