TIME TO PAUSE TO REMEMBER THOSE WHO FELL FOR OUR COUNTRY

By
Education & Training with Performance Development Strategies

This is Memorial Day weekend.  People see this as the beginning of summer and many have back yard barbecues. 

On a more somber note we should pause to remember our fallen soldiers.  Many towns around the country will be commemorating and having parades and services on Monday which is the observed holiday.  However, some will observe it on Tuesday, May 30th which is the official day.

Our town of North Castle NY is one of those observing always on May 30th.  Our local American Legion Post runs the commemorations which begin 6pm.  It is the American Legion Post's feeling that this should be a set aside time and not mixed with the long weekend.

In years past both of our daughters played patriotic music for the festivities when they were in the high school band.

Grant, we are seeing many enjoy a long weekend, but our real heros are our military men and women who have lost their lives for us.

Morning Grant.

My dad served in the Army, my best friend is a disabled vet and one of my agents is a retired pilot.  I'm reminded of their sacrifices each and every day

Grant, I love your message and wish that more would remember that today isn't about BBQ's or a day off from work. Honoring those who gave their lives to give us freedom is so important, especially today but, truly every day.

You are right, we shouldn't be thankful only on Memorial Day, we should remember the fallen every day of the year.
