Remembering Memorial Day 2013

Each man is a hero and an oracle to somebody.

As we approach Memorial Day, I would like to take the time and ponder a moment on what Memorial Day actually means.  From a historical stand point, Memorial Day, was originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service.

it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.

More than a million American fighting men and women have given, as Lincoln termed it at Gettysburg, the last full measure of devotion. Their valor and sacrifice made possible our freedoms, our values, our very existence.
Memorial Day should be a time of solemn reflection on some of the most sacred of human ideals: Faith, family, duty, commitment, heroism and honor. We are so profoundly indebted to all those soldiers, Marines, sailors and airmen who have given their lives defending us.

The National Moment of Remembrance Act was passed a few years ago by Congress, which asked Americans to pause for one minute at 3:00 p.m. local time and think about those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.  I think we should practice this ACT and pray for our men and women who are making it possible for us to remain free citizens of the United States of America.

This Memorial Day I solute those who are fighting for our Freedom, I would like to thank you for your services and may God keep you safe during your duties in protecting my freedom.  God Bless you all!!
