Memorial Day - Honor your Servicemen/women
Take time to honor the men and women who died serving our country so we can enjoy the freedom that we have. I know many people will say that we are not free today, but I personally disagree. We enjoy many freedoms and take most of them for granted!
Memorial Day was once called Decoration Day and started with the Civil War. The tremendous loss of life on both sides led to women decorating the graves of their loved ones with flowers. It was a way to show honor to the men who so bravely fought and a healing process for the women. You may read more about 10 facts of Memorial Day on CNN.
