Memorial Day has deep roots, originating just after the Civil War, when General John Logan declared “Decoration Day” to be a day set aside to honor fallen American soldiers. Since that time, many traditions have evolved, even some as recently as the in the year 2000, when Congress instituted the National Moment of Remembrance. This act encourages American citizens to pause at 3 pm, regardless of how they are celebrating, in an act of national solidarity. For certain, Memorial Day means many things to many people. To some, it is simply a day off to bar-b-que or go to the beach. To others, it means attending a parade and feeling that surge of American pride.
To many, however, Memorial Day truly remains a solemn time of remembrance, a time to reflect on the very personal price paid when a loved one lost their life in service. Without a doubt, pride runs deep in this country – we live in freedom today thanks to the sacrifices of countless men and women who have given everything to make sure of it.
