|JUST SOMETHING to PONDER this Memorial Day WEEKEND
Memorial Day Ė A Day of Honor
Does Memorial Day have meaning to you? Many communities around the United States have memorial day events at cemeteries where veterans and spiritual leaders speak. Other cities and towns host parades to honor the military. However, in many cities around the country, these events have been forgotten.
It is important for Americans to take time to remember the sacrifices that bought their freedom. Here are some ideas on how to celebrate this important American holiday:
Send a note of thanks to Veterans you know.
If you know someone who has lost a loved one in battle, offer to help with a household project or help meet a special need they have.
Visit a local cemetery and place flags or flowers on the graves of fallen soldiers.
Fly the American flag at half-staff until noon.
Participate in the National Moment of Remembrance at 3:00 pm. Pause and think upon the meaning of Memorial Day.
Pray for Godís blessing on America. Ask for Godís protection over all branches of our military.
FROM VQ WARBIRDS TO YOU... HAVE A SAFE and GREAT MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!
