Memorial Day Weekend kicks off the first enjoyable weekend in this lovely spring weather. But don’t let your sunglasses blind you to what else this weekend represents. Memorial Day commemorates those who have fought for nation and her ideals. Our first amendment right as Americans guarantees our right to free expression, so here are some fun ways to express yourselves creatively this Memorial Weekend!
