Remembering Those Who Did Not Forget Us...
This Monday, May 29th, in the United States we'll celebrate Memorial Day.
While we think of it as the "unofficial" beginning of the summer season, and enjoy block parties, picnics and parades with our families, we all should stop and reflect on the philosophy behind our day off from work.
Memorial Day, set aside each year as the final Monday in May, is a day to honor those who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Let's take some time to remember and say a prayer for those who gave their lives for us to celebrate on this day.
Friends, have a safe and peaceful Memorial Day.
