Memorial Day – Remember The True Meaning

Memorial Day – Remember The True Meaning

American FlagMemorial Day was originally called Decoration Day and is day of remembrance for those who have died serving the Unites States Of America. The holiday started on May 30, 1868 and it was 20 years later that is was changed to Memorial Day. On May 11, 1950 Congress passed a resolution requesting that the President issue a proclamation calling on Americans to observe each Memorial Day as a day of prayer for permanent peace and designating a period on that day when the people of the United States might unite in prayer.  President Nixon declared Memorial Day a federal holiday in 1971.

 

Many people consider Memorial Day the unofficial start of summer and head to the beach, hop in the pool, or plan a barbeque. All of these activities are great but, it’s important to remember that Memorial Day has the word memorial in it for a reason. Honoring those who have served our country and given their lives to keep us safe is the real meaning of Memorial Day. I’m proud to be an American and I’m grateful to those who have served and those who continue to serve. 

 

~ Happy Memorial Day ~
