Remembering Our Fallen Heroes On Memorial Day In Charlotte, NC

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

Memorial DayLet's not forget to remember our fallen heroes on Memorial Day this Monday. Memorial Day weekend might be a great way to "kick off" the summer season, but let's remember why we have this weekend in the first place. Memorial Day is our day to remember those brave men and women who have given their lives to defend our freedom. It's also a good time to show profound support for those who have been woundeed while protecting our nation. These heroic men and women sacrificed their futures so that we as a nation might enjoy a stronger future. So while celebrating and having fun this weekend, do take a bit of time to recognize why we have an opportunity to enjoy a three-day weekend each May. Let's not forget the deeper meaning of the day.

Hi Kathy ~ some of my earliest memories are marching in the Memorial Day parade in my community as a Brownie and then a Girl Scout. Except then, back in the 1950's it was called Decoration Day. So each year, parade first, then the fun. (Although it was pretty fun to march, too!)

George Souto ~ it makes sense to remember why we have an opportunity for the picnics and family fun--because others gave the ultimate sacrifice of their lives.

Hi Nina Hollander ,  That's one thing we must never do....We must never forget our lost heros.  It's nice that these ceremonies remind us why we are a free nation.
