Since it has its roots in the Civil War, I’ve covered the history of Memorial Day in other blog posts. Today, I just wanted to remind everyone to remember what this three-day weekend is all about – to honor those who have fallen in service to this country.

To help re-educate and remind Americans of the true meaning of Memorial Day, the “National Moment of Remembrance” resolution was passed in December of 2000 which asks all Americans, at 3 p.m.,”To voluntarily and informally observe in their own way a Moment of remembrance and respect, pausing from whatever they are doing for a moment of silence or listening to ‘Taps.”

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe holiday, and remembers to take a moment to remember the true meaning of the Day.
