Memorial Day: Remembering Our Fallen in the National Moment of Remembrance

By The ITS Crew

memorial-day-2016

Memorial Day, originally known as Decoration Day, was first observed in 1868 after the Civil War and was established as a day for the nation to decorate the graves of the fallen with flowers. While some people around the nation view Memorial Day as simply a day off from work, or their chance to get a good deal on an appliance, many of us still understand it’s a time for honoring those that gave their lives for our freedom and way of life.

The day is still about celebrating, but celebrating the lives and memory of the fallen who have paved the path to freedom and ensured we slept soundly in our beds at night. Those that gave everything in service to their country, who valiantly faced our nation’s enemies in all corners of the world and with unwavering bravery, gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Join us at 3 p.m. on Memorial Day in the National Moment of Remembrance and pause in an act of national unity for one minute. The time was chosen by Congress as collective moment when most Americans are enjoying their freedoms on the national holiday. It was created so that all Americans, alone or with family and friends, can stop to honor those who’ve perished in service of our country.
