Honoring Our Heroes

Memorial Day is a day for honoring the heroes who courageously fought to keep our lands free.  The Saturday before Memorial Day, hundreds of volunteers meet at the Biloxi Veterans Cemetery to decorate the cemetery with a beautiful display of flags.  We have been participating in this meaningful event for many years.  My husband's father and sister are buried at this cemetery as well as my aunt and uncle.  It is a special privilege to place a flag at their grave.  It is also a loving tribute to our soldiers and loved ones.  If you have a similar activity near you, I urge you to join this year in honoring the heroes in your community.

  3. Last year at this time I visited the cemetery in Normandy, and it brought me to my knees. How important it is to remember all who have served on our behalf.

    1. Reading your comment brought chills to me. To think about the ultimate sacrifice paid by so many on the beaches of Normandy is unimaginable. What a special memory you have.

  9. As a Canadian, the day marked here is Remembrance Day. There are services held and two minutes of silence at "the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month". Whatever the date, the act of remembering is the important thing.
