Although Memorial Day is a day off work, a perfect time to fire of the grill and to get some sweet deals, we don’t want to forget its true meaning. Today, let us not forget the men and women who have lost their lives in the name of freedom. We are able to enjoy today because of their bravery and willingness to fight for our protection.
Below are a few ways you can observe Memorial Day:
Flash your Flags: This is a great way to show your patriotic pride
Send Flowers: Flowers represent love,respect, appreciate and gratefulness
Silence: Take a moment of silence at 3:00p for the Congress’ National Moment of Remembrance. Americans are asked to stop and be silent until 3:01p
Make a Donation: Veterans need supportive services, so your donations are much-needed. Contact the Department of Veterans Affairs for more information
Salute at the Parade: Most cities have an annual Memorial Day parade where you can salute our soldiers as they pass
Make a Phone Call: Call someone you know has served our country and if you’re cooking, see if they want a plate
Spend Time with Friends & Family: Surround yourself with the ones you love as a way to show your appreciation for the freedoms you are at liberty to enjoy
