We proudly join with President Donald Trump this Memorial Day as he issues an inspiring Proclamation on Prayer for Peace.
In recognizing “those who rest in the hallowed grounds of our country’s national cemeteries [and] laid their lives upon the altar of freedom,” he requests all Americans observe the National Moment of Remembrance beginning at 3:00 p.m. local time today…Memorial Day.
Additionally, the president asks ”the Governors of the United States and its Territories, and the appropriate officials of all units of government, to direct the flag be flown at half-staff until noon on this Memorial Day on all buildings, grounds, and naval vessels throughout the United States and in all areas under its jurisdiction and control.”
Too many Americans view Memorial Day as a time for sales and cookouts. It is so much more. We should never forget the debt of gratitude we owe so many who gave the ultimate sacrifice so we could live in freedom.
