Happy Memorial Day Weekend !!
Memorial Day , originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service. General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, officially proclaimed it on May 5, 1868.
It used to be a very popular holiday that was commemorated by everyone. But lately, it has been ignored by too many U.S. citizens who are the beneficiaries of those brave Americans who have paid the supreme sacrifice. To re-educate and remind Americans about the true meaning of Memorial Day, the “National Moment of Remembrance” was passed by Congress in 2000. It asks that, at 3:00 P.M. on Memorial Day/Monday, all Americans stop and pause for a moment of remembrance and respect. Other ways to observe Memorial Day include visiting military cemeteries, placing flags or flowers on the graves of our veterans, visiting memorials, flying the flag at half-staff until noon, or flying the POW/MIA flag.
If you can’t do any of these things, at least realize the reason why we are off of school/work on Monday… To honor the bravery, patriotism, and love of country of the more than 1.5 Million Americans who have given their lives in battle so that we might enjoy the fruits of freedom and liberty.
Happy Memorial Day!
I'd like to extend a HUGE Thank You to all the military veterans (past, present & future) who protect the freedoms we enjoy (and take for granted) everyday..
