Best Patriotic Ways To Celebrate Memorial Day

" The official start of summer, Memorial Day is a time when families and friends come together to share good times, a meal, camaraderie and the hope for a great season to come. Despite its timing, the purpose of Memorial Day is, of course, quite different.

Three years after the Civil War ended, Memorial Day’s first, fledgling observances began. At that time, this significant date was known as Decoration Day, and observed through the simple act of placing flowers on the graves of America’s fallen heroes. May 30 was chosen for these commemorative acts because so many flowers were readily available in abundance at that time of year. The past decade has brought an escalation in the number of America’s fallen heroes as well as their mourners, with no communities untouched. Families can preserve the sanctity of this date while maintaining hope for the future and joy in the present. No matter what state you call home, there are many ways to mark the day.
