Moment of Silence
The federal government requests that Americans take a moment of silence at 3 p.m. on Memorial Day to remember the fallen soldiers who have fought for our country. It is called the National Moment of Remembrance. Three minutes to express gratitude for liberty, democracy, and freedom.
The Poppy Symbolizes Fallen Soldiers
There’s no honorable way to kill, no gentle way to destroy. There is nothing good in war. Except its ending.
– Abraham Lincoln
