Happy Memorial Day

It's Memorial Day.

Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day, because folks would visit the graves of fallen soldiers, who had given their lives in service to our country. On Memorial Day, survivors would place flowers, wreaths and other tokens of affection on the grave sites.

Each year, on Memorial Day, an American flag is placed by each of the 200,000-plus military graves at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.

Today, as we enjoy a day of rest and relaxation, picnics and parades, barbecues and bonfires, and the unofficial beginning of summer . . . may we remain mindful of the reason for the holiday.
