USA: National Moment of Remembrance 5/26/14

Posted in Uncategorized

On December 20, 2000, in his statement regarding the signing of the National Moment of Remembrance Act, President Clinton said:  “While these heroes should be honored every day for their profound contribution to securing our Nation’s freedom, they and their families should be especially honored on Memorial Day. The observance of a National Moment of Remembrance is a simple and unifying way to commemorate our history and honor the struggle to protect our freedoms.”

As you enjoy your freedoms on Memorial Day, please join your fellow Americans at 3:00 p.m. (local time) for the National Moment of Remembrance and solemnly reflect on the deeds and sacrifices of those who fell in battle in the defense of our liberty and our way of life, including privacy.  This is not a moment about sadness and grief – rather it is about honor, respect, duty and patriotism.  The WWII Museum in New Orleans has suggestions on how to observe Memorial Day at this link.  (Check out the video of Boy Scouts decorating graves at Chalmette National Cemetery.)
