of those from out great nation that have come and
gone before us. It's a celebration of life and to
honor our fallen, and the loved ones that we cherish
This is a sacred
day to war veterans, on which all Americans should
reflect on lives lost by their countrymen in
wartime. Personal moments to reflect on such loss
are appropriate for all. Public displays of
remembrance are appreciated by veterans especially,
such as raising the U. S. flag to half mast until
noon, or inviting a veteran to speak about their
experiences at your school or place of business.
Memorial Day should leave each of us with a better
appreciation for those who paid the ultimate
sacrifice for our freedoms.
