Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service. It was first observed on May 30, 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. Today, most of us have forgotten the true meaning of Memorial Day. It's a day off from work, a day of picnics and parties .... a three day week-end. This year, won't you re-educate yourself and others as to the true meaning of this holiday by observing a moment of remembrance and respect at 3:00 PM local time, pausing from whatever you are doing for a moment of silence or listening to "Taps."
