Memorial Day Memories
Memorial day is an amazing little gift that was paid for with the ultimate sacrifice, through the brave deeds of our men and women serving in the Armed Forces. It is a time when they are remembered for their sacrifices for our country and their families. It is a time when the general public is granted a long weekend of relaxation and time with family, because of what these brave souls did for our freedom. The origins of memorial day go back to Civil War times. The Civil War took a great toll on this country in terms of casualties and resources. It is after this conflict that more emphasis was put on decorating the graves of fallen service men. The government eventually followed suit and declared May 30th as memorial day. Well as you may have guessed, arrangements were made and the last Monday in May was adopted in the 1970s, because politicians like three day weekends, too. In the years that followed, memorial day has come to represent the beginning of summer and the end of the school year for the children. This year we get roughly a hundred days of summer and it will be over far too fast.
