Over time, holidays can lose their significance and merely become a day valued for its leisure activities. Things are no different with Memorial Day. For a lot people across the country, it merely signals that beginning of summer, but it’s a lot more than that. Here a few meaningful ways to celebrate Memorial Day.
Be A Part of the National Moment of Remembrance – At 3pm local time, spend a minute reflecting on those who given the greatest sacrifice in US armed conflicts. This time of remembrance was specifically created by Congress to help us celebrate the true meaning of Memorial Day.
Visit a local VFW – VFWs were created to make a space for veterans and armed forces members to find fraternity. Reach out to your local VFW and find out if they are holding any special events for Memorial Day. If not, just popping in and talking to veterans can be quite rewarding.
Buy A Poppy – VFWs often sell poppies during the time around Memorial Day. They are poppies because of a famous war poem called “In Flanders Fields.” The money collected goes to supporting the VFW.
We here at Simi Valley Buick GMC hope that your Memorial Day is both a day of remembrance and relaxation.
