May 30, 2021 marks Memorial Day for 2021, an American holiday to honor the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military.
Originally known as Decoration Day, the holiday became an official federal holiday in 1971. It's not only a day for the families and friends to honor their loved ones who've served, but a day for the whole nation to come together to respect the sacrifice and dedication for the protection of a unique but unified people.
We all need time to remember, and to honor those around us. Memorial day is a day of great remembrance for those who served in the military, and an important reminder to help us realize that we should have a day of memorial for the individuals who also have given to us on a regular, daily basis.
It can be simple as saying, "Thank you," to your parents over the phone, setting up a date night with your spouse or partner, taking your kids out for ice cream, or sending a personalized gift to show that you took the time to eternalize a memory important to you. However your personal memorial day manifests itself, remember that we are not alone, and that the power of remembrance heals, strengthens, and helps us build a stronger future.
