People say all the time, “Happy Memorial Day.” But Memorial Day isn’t meant to be happy. It is a day of mourning for those who have lost their lives defending this country.
While it is typically the holiday that kicks off summer vacations, cookouts, camping, and other outdoor summer activities in the U.S., did you know that this day was originally established in 1868? And it was originally set at the end of May because that is the time when flowers are blooming across the country.
So, instead of my regular Monday post, I pause to honor those who have fallen on the battlefields around the world so that I can sit here and write this post.
