Remember what Memorial Day is all about

As this holiday weekend comes to an end, take the time to remember what Memorial Day is really about.  It's not just about a long weekend at the beginning of summer, or one more day off school or work.

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service.
Originally started after the Civil War to honor the fallen soldiers, Memorial Day eventually became a day to honor all of our fallen soldiers from all wars.
For more information about Memorial Day and how it is observed, try these websites:
For some Young Adult literature on different wars throughout history pick up one of these books at the library today:

If you like what you read, there is plenty more on the shelves, plus a hand out in the teen area about books on other stories of war.
