Happy Memorial Day to each and every one of you. To me this day is about gratitude to so many people throughout history. Thank you to all the veterans. This day is also about looking forward to peace throughout the world. I would like to share something I read at www.history.com about this day.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day is much more than a three-day weekend that marks the beginning of summer. To many people, especially the nation’s thousands of combat veterans, this day, which has a history stretching back all the way to the Civil War, is an important reminder of those who died in the service of their country.

Uncover the interesting history of the holiday we now call Memorial Day. Discover little-known facts about America’s Wars and stop by the Veterans Forum message boards to share your views with veterans, their loved ones and fellow history buffs.

If this holds any interest to you, go to www.history.com where you can leave a message for the veterans, or their families. Whatever you do today, I send you peace.
