Memorial Day

Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day. It is a day for remembering those who have died in our nation’s service. We hope you and your family will take a few moments this holiday to observe the “National Moment of Remembrance.” This resolution was passed in December 2000 and asks that at 3:00 pm local time, for all Americans “To voluntarily and informally observe in their own way a Moment of remembrance and respect, pausing from whatever they are doing for a moment of silence or listening to “Taps.”” You can find out more about the history of Memorial Day by visiting: www.usmemorialday.org/backgrnd.html.

We leave you with this thoughtful poem by C.W. Johnson:

 Memorial Day

We walked among the crosses

Where our fallen soldiers lay.

And listened to the bugle

As “Taps” began to play.

The Chaplin led a prayer

We stood with heads bowed low.

And I thought of fallen comrades

I had known so long ago.

They came from every city

Across this fertile land.

That we might live in freedom.

They lie here ‘neath the sand.

I felt a little guilty

My sacrifice was small.

I only lost a little time

But these men lost their all.

Now the services are over

For this Memorial Day.

To the names upon these crosses

I just want to say,

Thanks for what you’ve given

No one could ask for more.

May you rest with God in heaven

From now through evermore.

~ C.W. Johnson
