While I haven't served in the US miltary or have any immediate friends or family that have served our country, I do what Madpenguin does and take a long moment of silence to honor the men and women that died for their military services, in the true spirit of Memorial Day.

I held a long moment of silence this morning.  In fact, I don't think I'll be going to any barbecues today since I think Memorial Day is best celebrated with silence.

Memorial Day is another opportunity to sit down with family and friends; a time to enjoy company and perhaps even to indulge in delicious food. However, please remember that for some families it can be difficult; it is a time to indeed remember and a time for reflection.       Please remember those people who have given up their lives so that we can enjoy this time with family and friends. Remember those who made a difference in the face of tyranny and evil; who …

Memorial Day weekend usually hits me as a weekend for honoring those that we have lost, time for friends and family, possible shopping sprees and a game-opener type weekend to the summer season.   Honoring those that we've lost on Memorial Day is most important to me.

About this topic


Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May. The day commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military services. First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War, it was later expanded after World War 1 to include American casualties of any war or military action. Friends and family observe this holiday by visiting cemeteries and memorials of loved ones.

As the unofficial beginning of summer, it is the traditional weekend in which people reopen pools and take in the sunshine. In addition to remembrance, Memorial Day is often seen as a time to share with family; picnics, barbeques, festivals and sporting events are yearly rituals for many. Additionally, one of the longest-standing traditions is the running of the Indianapolis 500, which has been held in conjunction with Memorial Day since 1911.
