Did you know that Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day? I didn't. I do now. Memorial Day honors all of our men and women that have lost their lives defending our rights and freedoms. It was enacted to honor the Union fallen warriors of the Civil War. Interesting history about this day so if you would like to read more go here:
Yes, this is a holiday here in the United States. Many will be traveling. Many will be having cook-outs with family and friends. Many will be sad. Many will remember their loved ones that have fallen and their loved ones that are now in harms way. But let us not forget exactly why it is a holiday.
Let us remember those that have fallen and give respect with honor. But, also let us remember those that are now serving us by being thankful that they give so much.
May God Bless all that have served and all that are serving...
