Good Tuesday morning everyone! A special thanks to anyone reading this from afar and engaged in defending our county in the Armed Forces. May this be a good and safe week for you and your loved ones.
Did you know that in 2000, President Clinton established a “National Moment of Remembrance” during Memorial Day? Well, he did and I for one think it is a great idea.
In December of 2000, his resolution was passed and a National Moment of Remembrance was established.
It takes place at 3:00 your local time. It is simple, easy, and wonderful!
The resolution calls for all Americans “To voluntarily and informally observe in their own way a Moment of Remembrance and Respect, pausing from whatever they are doing for a moment of silence or listening to Taps.”
So I know exactly what I will be doing at 3:00 pm Monday. I will be standing on my front porch, saluting our flag, and playing my favorite recording of Taps …. and yes, it has that twin trumpet echo in it!
So little we have to do. Just take a moment and remember all those who have given their all, for all those who have served, and all those who now serve.
Please put this on your refrigerator door, put it in your Smart Phone, put it on your calendar. BUT put it somewhere so you, too, join in this important Moment!
Onward To Our Past,
