A Day to Remember

The genuine reason for Memorial Day is to recall the sacrifices of the soldiers who gave their lives in support of our nation. The birthplace of this holiday extends back to the years following the Civil War when neighborhood townspeople would plant flowers and beautify the graves of troops who had died in a war. At last, the U.S. government institutionalized the Memorial Day, and throughout the years, the custom extended to respect officers lost in battle.

Memorial Day is the Kick-off For Summer

Individuals open their shoreline homes, place pontoons in the water and head to campgrounds to praise the entry of the warm climate.

This weekend, as we as a whole appreciate time with family and companions, we should take a couple of minutes to recollect the dedication and sacrifice of that make our freedom in the U.S. possible. Visit a war memorial. It's significant that we recall why we have a Memorial Day holiday and respect the individuals who battled for our nation and who, by their penance, have earned our endless appreciation.
