We want to wish all of our PCH fans a happy and safe Memorial Day as we kick off the official start to the summer of 2016!
Memorial Day is traditionally a day for parades, barbecues and picnics, or even for venturing out to the beach or lake with the family for the first time all year. For many it’s a joyful celebration.
But we cannot neglect the true meaning of Memorial Day. We at Publishers Clearing House want to remind all of our fans to please take a moment to honor those brave service men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our country. It could mean going to your community parade and saluting the marching veterans … volunteering to help decorate soldiers’ graves … even just raising the flag.
Here’s an interesting fact. As a way to remind Americans about the true meaning of Memorial Day, the “National Moment of Remembrance” resolution was passed in December 2000. It asks that at 3 p.m. local time all Americans “voluntarily and informally observe in their own way a Moment of Remembrance and respect, pausing from whatever they are doing for a moment of silence or listening to Taps.”
Now that’s something we can all take part in. So how about it? Are you with us?
