The meaning of Memorial Day

(1/1)

Northern Star Girl:
In the USA, this weekend is the annual Memorial Day holiday
long-weekend that marks the beginning of the Summer camping and picnic season.

BUT.... the real and true meaning of why we celebrate Memorial Day seems to be lost on many,
particularly the younger generation.

Memorial Day is a USA federal holiday .... the purpose is to  honor and mourn the
military personnel who have died in the performance of their military duties while
serving in the United States Armed Forces.

The annual holiday is observed on the last Monday of May.

My post posthumous thoughts are "Thank you for your service"  ...
For the loved ones of the fallen military personnel, may God's grace and comfort
be with you ... knowing that they did not die in vain. ...

         Let us not Forget !!!!

HUGS,
Danielle
