Realtor - Amanda S. Davidson: Memorial Day | Remember and Honor

Memorial Day | Remember and Honor

Memorial Day | Remember and Honor

Memorial Day is a day we remember with gratitude, all those that served and gave their lives for our country and our freedom. All too often I only hear about the BBQ’s and time off from work but, if it weren’t for the heroes who loved their country enough to die for it none of that would be possible. Thank you to those who have given their lives to give each one of us freedom. I am forever grateful.

 Memorial Day


Wishing everyone a safe Memorial Day – please remember to participate in the National Moment of Remembrance at 3pm.

Memorial Day is a day of remembrance. Over 1 million men & women have died while serving in the U.S.Military since 1775. This annual holiday is a time to hold them in our thoughts & consider their service -- without the filter of politics.
Memorial Day isn't about romanticizing war or worshiping military veterans. It is a day to recognize personal sacrifices of veterans and active military alike, regardless of their inclinations to war.

Thank You Amanda, I so agree with you what the day means and it is more then BBQ's.  My flag is flying high today in my yard.

  Have a great day!

HI Amanda... I'm old enough to remember no Memorial Day weekend and just a Decoration Day falling when it fell. I much prefered it that way... it seemed people were more conscious of the purpose of the day. (Of course, this was also closer in time to WWII and the Korean Conflict and then the Viet Nam War.)

HI Amanda- I've been watching something on the History Channel and was disturbing to see the Vietnam vets returning home to jeers instead of what they so well deserved.

Agreed Amanda. Unfortunately there are those that see Memorial Day as just another holiday to do sale or promotion. Today is a day to honor those who gave their lives in defense of all the freedoms we hav today. May we never forget the fallen.
