What is the Meaning of Memorial Day ?
What is Memorial Day? The holiday takes place annually on the last Monday in May and is a dedicated day for honoring U.S. military personnel who have died while serving in the United States armed forces. It used to be called Decoration Day, after the end of the American Civil war, and folks would go out and decorate the graves of dead soldiers, honoring them with flowers and flags.
In recent history Memorial Day has also meant the official start of summer with many people having barbecues with family and friends.
Folks, while everyone has the freedom to celebrate as they choose, in my view, Americans should always remember that this holiday is really a somber occasion to pause and reflect on the ultimate sacrifice these heroes have made to preserve our freedom.
On behalf of the Coastal Network, I wish everyone a blessed holiday and may God Bless America. Let us hope that the service that our veterans provided to protect our nation will continue to maintain our prosperity and happiness. Nothing else is acceptable.
HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!
