Awakenings: Honoring Memorial Day!

on May 24, 2015

‘Happy’ routinely appears preceding the words Memorial Day. There is absolutely no way around it. BUT…is that the proper precedent to Memorial Day? We are happy to live in America. We happily enjoy all the freedoms America has to offer. Joyous are we getting prepared for time with family and friends: walking the beach, swimming, picnicking, bar-be-queuing, etc. In the midst of all the food, fun, fellowship associated with Memorial Day, let’s not forget who are the true honorees!


Be in the know for this day’s special celebration! It goes way beyond the food, fun, fellowship. The happiness associated with Memorial Day has come at an immense sacrifice. Tomorrow is Memorial Day but first, it is important to understand Memorial Day vs. Veterans’ Day and the true meaning behind Memorial Day!

    Sharla your words are so true–freedom is a hard earned gift that is not and never was free–the cost was thousand of lives–we must never forget this on Memorial day.

    Please drop by my blog tomorrow–I need comments on a pay it fwd thing I’m doing all day.

    Love, Micki
