The Tradition of Celebrating Memorial Day: "Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country's armed forces. The holiday, which is observed every year on the last Monday of May, was formerly known as Decoration Day...The practice of decorating soldiers' graves with flowers is an ancient custom. Soldiers' graves were decorated in the U.S. before and during the American Civil War.  By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who died while in the military service."  Memorial Day often marks the beginning of summer for families and is a  popular day to bar-b-que, visit graves of loved ones, and place flags on the graves of those who have served in the US military.
What ever you do, where ever you go, be at peace and focus on peace.  It is time.
