A DAY FOR GRATITUDE MEMORIAL DAY TRADITIONS
On May 28, we take time to honor the individuals who died while serving in the U.S. armed forces. Thanks to the bravery of those men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for this country, we enjoy peace and freedom here at home. Setting aside one day a year to honor this sacrifice is the least we, as Americans, can do. There are so many different ways to spend Memorial Day weekend. For some, it’s a time for somber reflection. They may attend a wreath-laying ceremony, visit their local military cemetery, or hold a moment of silence in their home. Others prefer to spend the time playing tag football with the family, visiting The National WWII Museum, or watching the Indianapolis 500 with a cold one. These disparate traditions are part of what makes this country great. “EVERY ONE OF US HAS OUR OWN WAY OF HONORING THE FALLEN. WHAT
Memorial Day is supposed to be about. Then again, taking the time to enjoy the peace and prosperity our troops fought for could be seen as the perfect way to honor their service. So long as you keep the fallen and their
families in your thoughts, we don’t see anything wrong with bringing some levity to the day.
There is no “right” way to spend Memorial Day, because when it comes down to it, it’s a day about gratitude: gratitude for those who gave their lives to make ours possible. Every one of us has our own way of honoring fallen service members. What matters is that we keep our hearts in the right place. So, no matter what your plans are for Memorial Day, we ask that you take at least a moment to pause and reflect on the service of these brave men and women. To all Gold Star families, active service members, veterans, and anyone who has lost someone dear to them in the line of duty, our thoughts and prayers are with you. The nation owes you and your loved ones a debt of gratitude.
MATTERS IS THAT WE KEEP OUR HEARTS IN THE RIGHT PLACE.”
Those who gave their lives defending the United States of America were protecting our freedoms. It’s fitting that our country has innumerable ways of honoring that sacrifice. Unfortunately, you see a lot of heated arguments on this subject, especially on social media.
