HAVE A GREAT MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!   I hope you are all planning on enjoying the long weekend ahead.  While you are enjoying your families and friends, and what appears to be fantastic weather, please keep in mind the reason for the holiday.   Memorial Day was first celebrated on May 30, 1868.  As one would expect, the day was created to memorialize all of those soldiers who had died during the Civil War.  Both Union and Confederate soldiers were honored at Arlington National Cemetery on that date.  Every fallen soldier was honored with a wreath of flowers and saluted as heroes of our nation. Since that first Memorial Day there have been thousands of parades, millions of red poppies and countless tears shed in honor of our nation’s heroes.   This year, commit to sharing with your children, nieces and nephews the true meaning of the holiday.  Make certain that they understand that for literally every second of the holiday weekend, a brave man or woman gave the greatest sacrifice to our nation.  We owe those who have served and especially those who gave the ultimate sacrifice so much, let’s honor them by educating our children as to the reason for the holiday.
