Honoring Those Who Died for Our Country

This articles expresses better than I the reasons we take a day off on Memorial Day.  It’s not for the parties, picnics, or sales.  The piece spoke to me because as a kid, Memorial Day morning involved a parade to our local cemetery, laying wreaths on veterans’ graves, and the recitation of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.

I hope it speaks to you, too.
