Happy Memorial Day~
Hello Sweet Friends and Happy Memorial Day to you all,
Today is a day of remembrance. It is a day for honoring veterans. It is a day to remember our fallen heroes, A day that we should thank them for their service past and present. And it is a day where you can display your American flag.
Did you know there's a ritual for how to set your flag at half staff? As Memorial Day approaches Monday, you'll want to follow the tradition. When flown at half-staff or half-mast, the U.S. flag should be first hoisted to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff or half-mast position. The flag should again be raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day. Flags should be returned to full-staff at sunset.
"On Memorial Day we honor all Americans who have given the greatest sacrifice for our state and country.”
The official start of summer may be June 21, but Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial kickoff to the season.
Have a beautiful day~
