Director’s Message: Memorial Day
My fellow employees —
I know many of you are looking forward to the upcoming three-day weekend, with the lab closed on Monday in observance of Memorial Day. I too anticipate some needed rest and rejuvenation.
While I do hope everyone enjoys safe and relaxing time off, I hope you’ll also join me in a little reflection on the meaning of the holiday.
Memorial Day, like the Remembrance Day that I observed while in England, is meant to honor those who died while serving in the country’s armed forces. We should all take the opportunity to remember and be grateful for those who sacrificed their lives for our freedoms, including the freedom to spend time with our family and friends, as many of us plan to do this weekend.
I wish you all a very pleasant holiday.
