Did you know:
Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day. Major General John A. Logan led the campaign in 1868 that proposed a day be set aside to decorate the graves of the Civil War soldiers with flowers.
Logan chose May 30 as the day because flowers would be in bloom all over the country. In 1971, the Monday Holiday Law shifted Memorial Day from May 30 to the last Monday of the month.
The National Moment of Remembrance encourages all Americans to pause wherever they are at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day for one minute of silence to remember and honor those who have died in service to the nation.

Thanks for the post and the 3PM reminder... I read this in a post that I re-blogged this AM and thought it great...

Memorial day, a day to pursue happiness, to pursue freedom, to pursue love, to utilize all our Veterans gave us!

Have a Blessed Day
