Take Time To Remember

The Memorial Day weekend has increasingly become a "holiday" where we shop for some great sales, get ready for summer with barbeques, beaches, fireworks or just relax having three days off from our grueling work week.

The original intention for Memorial Day was first enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War. It was extended after World War I to honor Americans who have died in all wars.

Take some time today to remember our service men and women, past and present. So many have given there lives for our freedom and so many are faced with danger every day for our continued liberty. We praise them and pray for them!!!

Excellent!! On this Memorial Day. This was interesting and very informational. I had no idea it dated back so far and that there is still some controversy about the date. Thank you for the tribute.

I was just at the Library of Congress looking over art made during the Civil War and also at very old photos of Memorial Day. It's a wonderful place to go and get a glimpse of our nation's history. Thank you for this post.

US, Britain & Canada.. The greatest alliance the world has ever known. God bless all that serve.. Past, Present and Future. Our countries may bicker, or mock one another on the media.. But when one is attacked, the other two are there and always have beenwithout question.
God Bless you Britain and Canada for always being there for the US. As we will be for you.
