Memorial Day 2018
“Memorial Day is a time to take stock of the present, reflect on the past, and renew our commitment to the future of America.”
– President Ronald Reagan, Memorial Day 1983
Memorial Day is a day to honor those who gave their lives in service to our country. Their sacrifice lay the foundation for the freedoms and opportunities we enjoy every day. As you celebrate the unofficial start of summer, consider taking a moment with your child to reflect on the true meaning of the holiday. It’s important that the next generation understands our country’s history as a reminder that every action taken today has far-reaching effects for those who come after us. In addition, sometimes a little perspective can help students see their own stressful lives through a different lens. Wishing you a safe and wonderful Memorial Day. Enjoy!
