Memorial Day in the US






Memorial Day

A federal holiday in the USA.

The last Monday in May is set aside each year for us to remember those who have died serving our country.

Flags are flown at half staff until 12:00 noon.

After that they are raised up to full staff.

This signifies that they will be remembered by us and their sacrifice has not been vain as we  continue to stand up or raise up to fight for liberty and justice in their stead.

And we can also do this because of their sacrifice.

Freedom isn't free.
