Happy Memorial Day 2018!

memorial-day-2018Do you know why Memorial Day really is meant to be celebrated? Or is this just a day businesses are closed giving us a long weekend? Or is Memorial Day when fashion rules say that you can wear white again? There is so much more behind this solemn occasion that should remember❤. There are so many veterans that have died while servicing in the country’s armed forces. These brave men and women gave their lives for our freedom and should be honored❤.

Many people get Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day confused, so please allow me to clarify thinkstockphotos-472330722these two holidays. As I already have stated, Memorial Day is meant to remember the men and women that died while serving their country. Veteran’s Day celebrates the service of all United States Military Veterans, which is also very important.

For Memorial Day, which is observed on the last Monday of May, flags across the country are lowered to a half-staff position only until noon and then they will be raised to a full-staff position for the remainder of the day. This is a way to show respect for the veteran’s bravery and selflessness and of course honor their memory!

I hope you have had a lovely and safe holiday weekend! At least this Monday was not a Happy-Memorial-Day-2018-Quotes-WIshes-Imagesday to dread by going back to work, but a Monday we can acknowledge those that gave their lives for our life and freedom. 

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope the little information I have provided was not only interesting but great to read! I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday and you are feeling great after the long weekend! Of course I always appreciate your amazing comments and will respond to all of them just as quickly as I can! Please never forget that I am always sending you LOTS of❤ love and comfort!

My signature heart

❤Always, Alyssa❤

    • That does sound like a fantastic job! I will be honest, it is sad how the vets are treated now. They deserve the best care as they did risk their lives for our freedom. I am not one that agrees with war because I think there must be other ways to handle conflict, mostly by being respectful and willing to compromise. I guess this is why I would never make it in Washington!!

      • That is so sweet! I am sure the veterans appreciated your kindness! I have and always will be very anti-war! I do not feel that war solves any problems, but it does cause far more problems!

    • I really appreciate your comment! I am so anti-war because there has to be a better way to solve the issues rather than people dying. I know Poppy served and so did Jon’s grandfather, they were two of the most amazing men in the entire world!
