So Shabby Pink - It's Memorial Day

Hi there.

My husband is retired from the Air Force so we remember all the patriotic holidays. Memorial Day is to remember all those who have died while serving in the military. It was originally known as Decoration Day and was to remember the fallen Union soldiers in the Civil War. It was expanded after WW I to include all.
The meaning of so many of our holidays gets blurred over time. Retailers use them to promote sales. There are picnics and gatherings to have fun, eat and dance. Let's talk a few minutes this weekend and remember what Monday is all about.
Hoping all are well and that you remember those men and women at some point this holiday weekend.
So Shabby Pink
