Picoblog Question – 2016 – Post #41

Picoblog Question – 2016 – Post #41

What are you planning to do to observe Memorial Day 2016?

My two cents, but please share yours:

This year, I’m going to take a moment of silence to remember those who have died for this country. Then I will take another moment to remember those who have or are still serving us.

  1. I’ll take my grandson to the parade in town. It’s a time of family and community, the thing our service men and women fight for.

    • What a wonderful family tradition, D. Wallace! I hope the weather is perfect for you and your grandson that day. Cheers, Ashley

  2. I take my moment of silence in November, on the 11th – try to make it at 11 AM. It often brings me to tears. This is the kind of picture in my mind…

    • That’s a lovely tradition, Aunt Mary. Thank you for sharing it. Cheers, Ashley

  3. Question: What is meant by a sign that says “Happy Memorial Day!”. Does it just indicate that someone has no clue what “memorial” means? I’ve seen such a thing more than once.

    • Folks have been saying “Happy Memorial Day!” for as long as I can remember, Aunt Mary, and it does seem a little odd. I asked Mom about it once, and she said she hoped people could be happy while focusing on remembrance. Cheers, Ashley
