Honor. Remember. Never forget.
This entire three-day weekend is about a lot more than barbecues, baseball and the beach, and it’s not a patriotic celebration of military might, it is a remembrance of the 1 million plus casualties of all our wars who never made it home.
National Moment of Remembrance
The “National Moment of Remembrance” resolution was passed in December of 2000 and asks that at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day, for all Americans “To voluntarily and informally observe in their own way a Moment of remembrance and respect, pausing from whatever they are doing for a moment of silence or listening to ‘Taps.”
Now here are the stories to close out this week…
Everyone have a safe weekend!
