The Meaning of Memorial Day -- 3pm National Moment of Remembrance

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service.
We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.
To help re-educate and remind Americans of the true meaning of Memorial Day, the "National Moment of Remembrance" resolution was passed on Dec 2000 which asks that at 3 p.m. local time, for all Americans "To 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."

Do your part today at 3pm and remember our fallen heroes.

In An Obama Nation -- Holiday BBQ

An ongoing feature demonstrating the points put forth by Barack Obama that in order to be leaders in the world we will have to be cold and hungry.

In An Obama Nation:

This is where I would love to have for dinner on this Memorial Day Holiday:

This is the what I will have to settle for. All for the sake of being a good world leader! After all we've been told we eat too much!

But wait, charcoal BBQ's produce CO2, so I guess I will have to use this instead -- but only for a few minutes MAX!

Don't worry, while you and I will feel like Iranian hostages the academics and the media will hail this leadership as being even better then freeing 50 million from tyranny, right up there with winning a world war or cold war.
