Chris Pratt shared a moving Memorial Day tribute on social media. The patriotic actor understands the true meaning of the holiday and used his platform to remind us of that.
Many people view Memorial Day as a “long weekend,” or the unofficial start to summer. But that certainly isn’t what it is about . It is a time to honor and pay tribute to those who gave their lives serving in our country’s military.
Chris Pratt’s IG post is incredibly well said regarding the importance of Memorial Day. Whew 😭🇺🇸

Pratt, 41, has a history of supporting our veterans and he’s grateful to their service and sacrifice. The A-list actor doesn’t bend to Hollywood’s woke politics and he proudly supports those who defend us.
He even started a patriotic-based movie production company called Indivisible Productions.
He did this because he wants to boost American exceptionalism and pride in his films.
On Memorial Day, Pratt shared several moving Memorial Day photos along with some stirring commentary that will hit patriotic Americans in the feelings.
Absolutely love Chris Pratt. Great post.
All the best to you on Memorial Day, my friend. #MemorialDay2021

Not only did he honor our fallen heroes, but he reminded those contemplating leaving an unkind or woke comment that these men and women died for their right to “bitch and moan about America.”
Message For Those Who “Bitch And Moan About America”
Pratt wrote a stirring Memorial Day post:
“I saw these images on @timkennedymma feed. Please, look at each one. Pause, give them your consideration. America’s exceptional armed forces have altered the course of the world for the better. From the Union Army defeating slave owning confederates, to the Greatest Generation and her Allies vanquishing the Nazis or our special operators hunting down the perpetrators of 9/11. We count the names of each fallen solider lest they be countless. They are the good guys. They run to the sound of gunfire. They know pain and suffering we never will. They have given us the most free and decent society planet earth has ever seen. We run the risk of losing that decency when we fail to instill gratitude in the minds of our youth or the perspective of what it actually means to be free- should they never learn of the selfless sacrifice of our armed service members in the face of oppressive evil. So join me in showing support for our fallen. Take a quiet moment to really consider the sacrifice. And if you use the comments section on posts like this to bitch and moan about America please understand there are countries in the world where criticizing your government will get you killed or imprisoned. Criticism is a right and necessity in amending the flawed systems of man. So by all means, let your voice be heard. But never forget your right to free expression is paid for in blood. May God give their souls rest, and may they live in our memories this weekend and always.”
