Default National Rememberence Act!

I didn't know this ... The Heritage Foundation website has a piece on Memorial Day:

To help remind Americans of the true meaning of Memorial Day, Congress passed the National Moment of Remembrance Act in 2000. This resolution asks Americans, wherever they are at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day, to pause for one minute in a symbolic act of unity to “remember and honor the men and women of the United States who died in the pursuit of freedom and peace.”

Awesome!!!!

While this is nice why would you need someone to tell you to remember the people who gave their life for your freedom.

Only 2 defining forces have ever died for you ,. Jesus Christ ,and the American fighting man. One for your soul,and the other for your freedom.

I would bet my house, that not even close to 50% of the population of the USA has a clue what this day actually celebrates, and I'm being very generous with that low number.
