Today, I would like to re-post one of the Memorial Day Week-End posts, so if you will forgive me for pulling from the past, please take a look at the below link.
I think it is very important that we do not forget those who have lived and died for our country’s freedom….as well as those loved ones who have passed away.
Those wonderful people that have that special place in our hearts.
Please see my child hood (and adult) memories of picking flowers (peony’s and roses and spirea sprigs in the Midwest), at the following link.
As a child, I participated in the Memorial Day activities (we called it Decoration Day)…. knowing there would be fun with cousins and other relatives followed by a wonderful picnic after.
As an adult, I participate because of the love I have for those who have gone before me, including those who were in the Military and their families….many times, they are names on a wall, obscure to me, but respected none-the-less and certainly we will never forget all the sacrifices these men and women made.
Memorial Day has been an official national holiday for over 40 years aimed at remembering those who served in the armed forces.
The Veteran’s Administration suggests Americans stop for a moment of reflection at 3 p.m. on the 26th of May.
Visiting this National Cemetery was sobering.

My dear readers, I hope you have a wonderful and safe Holiday week-end.
God Bless America!
