Memorial Day a Day For Remembering
By sally edelstein / May 30, 2016
Memorial Day has the word “memorial” for a reason
More than a Monday spent at beaches, backyard barbecues and blockbuster movies, Memorial Day is the day we remember and honor those who died serving our country.
Unlike Veterans Day it is not a celebration; it was intended to be a day of solemn contemplation over the high cost of freedom.
In this time of divisiveness and polarization, of spectacle and mud-slinging, it is more than ever important to stop, come together, and remember those who have given their all.
Today we pay homage to all the soldiers who didn’t come home.
