Thank You for this post Chutz!
Here are a couple of quotes that I looked up, and thought I would share them as well.
"The "Memorial" in Memorial Day has been ignored by too many of us who are beneficiaries of those who have given the ultimate sacrifice. Often we do not observe the day as it should be, a day where we actively remember our ancestors, our family members, our loved ones, our neighbors, and our friends who have given the ultimate sacrifice"
We have a military base close to our house, and whenever I meet a service man or service woman, I always approach them and "Thank" them for serving our country. As we sleep comfortably throughout the night, I'm very grateful we have men and women, standing guard over our country. Bless them! Bless them!
I too!...will take an active part in the remembrance of those who have died in service for this great country, by observing the 3:00pm minuet of silence on "Memorial Day" ..."We encourage all members to do the same"
"However you decide to celebrate this important day, be sure to stop and remember the men and women who fought for this country. In many ways, their fight has helped create the freedom that allows us to enjoy days like this"
