Remembering Those We’ve Lost
“Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13 (NASB)
Memorial Day first started following the Civil War. Citizens around the country would honor the fallen soldiers from both the Union and Confederate sides of America’s most tragic and violent conflict. Originally called “Decoration Day,” the early summer holiday officially became known as Memorial Day in the mid-20th century. Now, Memorial Day serves as a tribute to all servicemen and servicewomen that have lost their lives while protecting American liberty.
Although to many, Memorial Day marks the beginning of the summer holiday season, the traditions of this reverent holiday go far beyond backyard barbecues and sunscreen. The graves of fallen soldiers and military personnel are traditionally decorated with flowers on Memorial Day as a sign of respect. In many cities throughout the U.S., parades are held showcasing current and former servicemen and women.
Amid the fun and excitement of Memorial Day, it’s important to stop and remember those in the United States Armed Forces who have lost their lives in the struggle for our country’s freedom. Without their sacrifice, our comforts and luxuries would never have come to be. If you have the opportunity, thank an active or former serviceman or servicewoman on Memorial Day.
