Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service. May all Americans please take a moment, at 3 pm your local time, “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.” – via the “National Moment of Remembrance“, a resolution that was passed in 2000.
Ronald Reagan – A Time for Choosing speech Oct 27, 1964:
“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We’ll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we’ll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.” – Ronald Reagan, October 27, 1964
