Memorial Day

So many folks now think of it as a day off work to shop, play at the beach , fish and have fun on a long weekend.
Well yes it can be all that but I sure hope you take a few moments of Memorial Day to thank our many service men and women, past and present for that freedom. We owe them at least a Thank You.
Memorial Day is a special day to celebrate, honor and remember the lives that have been lost at the service of our nation.

The National Moment of Remembrance is at 3pm Monday so wherever you are please join in one minute of silence as a show of national unity.

Wishing everyone a happy and safe Memorial Day!


  1. Thank you for this reminder of why we have this "long weekend". You are so right in what you say and I hope all pause to remember at some point during the weekend.

  2. I have always thought of Memorial Day this way, but thanks for the post.

  3. It's not a day off here for work or school. However, we'll have a neighborhood bbq.

  4. I have the same sentiments about our day - ANZAC Day. Australians stand side by side with Americans in the current conflicts - just as we did in Vietnam and WW2. I will be taking time out today to remember the losses on both sides and be thankful for those who return home to their families and friends.


  5. I am going to do my tribute but it will be posted Monday thank you for remembering our dear men and women in uniform my friend >Love U

  6. Dad was a veteran, and Memorial Day is a special experience for us. thanks for the post Lola
