Memorial Day…In Remembrance

Memorial Day is a day of remembering the courageous men and woman that died protecting our country. There are Memorial Day parades, services, memorials and cookouts to celebrate their dedication and our appreciation of their service.

I remember marching in the Memorial Day parade with my Girl Scout troop every year. I guess that helped remind me what Memorial Day was all about even as a young child. When my children were small, I took them to that same parade every year.

Gravestones are dressed for Memorial Day with bright red geraniums. Soldiers help place hundreds of flags adorning military grave sites in neat little rows.

Memorial Day has different traditions and rituals to different people. Whatever your tradition, let’s make sure to take a moment at 3 pm today to remember all those courageous men and woman.

Happy Memorial Day!  God Bless America!
