For those of you working hard to gear up advertising budgets for 2023, and even if you’re not working hard, Memorial Day is a chance to take a break to remember the heroes that gave their lives for our freedom. There will be a national moment of remembrance at 3 p.m. your local time. Take some time to remember the ones no longer with us and thank those that are still around. Celebrate, then after you’ve had burgers and potato salad, check out one of the new movies that have been released.
