Morgen selected Star as the theme for this week's Manic Monday meme. He dedicated the theme to Sarge Charlie and all the men & women around the world who have bravely served their country. I have shared information about our brave military heroes here and here in the past.
Often we act like Memorial Day is all about barbecues and extended weekend parties and celebration. Some of us think that this day is significant because it is when swimming pools open. We forget to consider the sacrifices of the soldiers in whose honor it is celebrated.
As such, I encourage all Villagers to share with your family, friends or blog readers a reminder about the 'National Moment of Remembrance' as a teaching moment for future generations to learn about the real meaning of the holiday. We want you to keep silent for a minute, exactly at 3.00 pm (local time) on Memorial Day when 'Taps' is played. Use that moment of remembrance to reflect on the glory of those who have shed blood for us.
