Today is 2021 Memorial Day In Middletown, CT. Memorial Day is a day our Country has set aside to honor the fallen men and women who have served in our Armed Forces, and put their lives on the line to ensure the freedoms we have.
Memorial Day has also become a time in past years, where families get together for picnics and family fun. These gatherings were limited last year, and the customary local parades were canceled because of the COVID-19 Virus. However, this year all the customary activities will be going on again, and hopefully there will be a lot of participation.
My message this year is one I request every year. Whatever you do today I hope a part of your day is spent on reflecting upon the meaning of this day, and those who we honor.
