Remembering the fallen - Memorial Day activities throughout Oregon 

 

I'll admit, I've gotten extremely frustrated with so much "advertising" that takes place prior to the Memorial Day weekend.  Discount sales at various department stores, talks of family bar-b-ques or other "festivities".

We need to take a moment and reflect on what Memorial Day is REALLY about.  A celebration?  I guess I find using the word "celebration" difficult when it's a day to reflect and remember those who gave the greatest sacrifice.  

Here is a link to a web-site that gives information on various things taking place through the State of Oregon, in terms of remembering our heroes this upcoming weekend.

I hope you will spend time remembering the true meaning for this upcoming weekend.
