It’s important to remember the real reason for Memorial Day, to honor those who sacrificed their lives in defense of the country. Whether you agree or not with the reasons we go to war, it’s still more important to remember those who actually fight said wars.
Here in the apartment building where I am staying, every year at this time, they set up the Table For One. It’s a tradition to honor those who have fallen, were or are P.O.W.’s, and those who served. Every piece on the table has significance. Go to the link to see the details.
If you have any veterans in your family, be sure to take a moment this holiday and thank them for their service.
