Happy Memorial Day - 2013

Wishing you all a happy and safe Memorial Day!

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is set aside in order that all US citizens (and visitors) could honor those that have died in service to the USA.

Memorial Day is a day in which graves of soldiers and others whom gave their lives in service to their country are cleaned up, flowers laid and, if appropriate, a folded flag placed.

All flags should be at half-mast today as well.

So, while we enjoy our BBQs and parades, there is something small everyone in the USA can do to honor this day: At 3p local time, pause for a moment of silence as per the National Moment of Remembrance calls for. After all, founder Carmella LaSpada said it best, “It’s a way we can all help put the memorial back in Memorial Day.”
