Memorial Day 2017

memorial day

Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the military. People visit cemeteries and memorials to honor those who have died in military service and place an American flag on the graves.

If you see coins left on a veterans grave each denomination has its own meaning. A single penny left means someone has visited the grave to pay their respects. A nickel means that the visitor was at boot camp with the deceased. A dime means it was left by someone who served with them. And a quarter means it was left by someone who was present when the soldier died.

Remember that Memorial Day is to honor all those women and men who has died while in uniform serving this great nation of ours and Veterans Day is to honor all who has served.

Take a moment to listen and watch this powerful speech from Ronald Reagan, at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in 1985.

Happy Mother’s Day

mother's day

The modern holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. St Andrew’s Methodist Church now holds the International Mother’s Day Shrine. Her campaign to make “Mother’s Day” a recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905, the year her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, died. Ann Jarvis had been a peace activist who cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the American Civil War, and created Mother’s Day Work Clubs to address public health issues. Anna Jarvis wanted to honor her mother by continuing the work she started and to set aside a day to honor all mothers because she believed that they were “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world”.

In 1908, the US Congress rejected a proposal to make Mother’s Day an official holiday, joking that they would also have to proclaim a “Mother-in-law’s Day”. However, owing to the efforts of Anna Jarvis, by 1911 all US states observed the holiday, with some of them officially recognizing Mother’s Day as a local holiday, the first being West Virginia, Jarvis’ home state, in 1910. In 1914, Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation designating Mother’s Day, held on the second Sunday in May, as a national holiday to honor mothers.
