Simple Ways to Honor Memorial Day
Even though we’re adhering to some new rules this year due to the pandemic, we can still honor Memorial Day and the fallen members of our military. Here are five things you can do to honor the holiday.
Simply fly the american flag if it’s not already something you do every day.
Give your kids sidewalk chalk. Get creative with them and make patriotic drawings or write thank-you messages to veterans on your sidewalk or driveway.Donate flowers to a fallen hero. Check with your local cemetery to see if they’re accepting Memorial Day donations during the pandemic, or donate to ‘Memorial Day Flowers’, which is an organization that coordinates placing them on grave sites.
Finally, participate in the national moment of remembrance. At 3:00 p.m. on Memorial Day, we’re encouraged to pause for a moment of silence for those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
