Nah, we didn't barbecue today. Maybe this weekend for my uncle's birthday. However, I spent the day well. My family and I spent the day preparing for a benefit for a friend of ours. She had back surgery and is currently trying to recover from partial paralysis. She is doing well, but we are having a benefit carnival to help pay for her medical bills. I believe memorial day is about doing good, and barbecues are. They are about spending time together, catching up, and celebrating a day dedicated to our military.
