Each year, last Monday in May we celebrate Memorial Day holiday gather with family and friends, attend parades, and honor those who lost their lives for our freedom. This year Memorial Day will take place on Monday, May 28th, 2012. Memorial Day was first observed on May 30, 1868, flowers were placed on soldiers graves at Arlington National Cemetery. New York was the first state to officially recognize the holiday in 1873.
I want to share some of the best Memorial Day quotes
A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself. – Joseph Campbell
The patriot’s blood is the seed of Freedom’s tree. – Thomas Campbell
For love of country they accepted death… – James A. Garfield
I am personally very grateful to everyone who served, and currently serving for their courage and sacrifices they made continuously to protect our country, so we can live a free better life.
I want to wish to all my friends and to all members at Active Rain community a happy Memorial Day.
God Bless United States of America and all who have served, and now serving our nation.
WISHING YOU AND YOUR FAMILY HAPPY AND WONDERFUL MEMORIAL DAY
