Thursday Writing Prompts – Remembering Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a time to remember the those who have died for our country and our freedom. Many people think it is just another day to get out of school or a great time to go to the beach, or maybe even the unofficial start of summer. But it is so much more than that.

If you could, what would you say or ask a soldier from the:

A) Revolutionary war

B) Civial War or War Between the States


D) Korean or Vietnam Wars

E) Modern-day wars/Middle-Eastern Conflict

Write down your thoughts.


While you may not be able to ask a milirary member that has passed, you may be ask someone in your community.

When I see a former member of a branch of service, I show respect, I make eye contact, and I speak, if appropriate. Often times, I thank them for their service to our country.

You don’t have to beleive in war, believe in the war they fought, or believe in the current status of our military, to be nice and kind to your elders. Just remember, no matter what branch, what rank, etc., they do deserve our upmost respect.

So, I hope you will take a moment prior to Memorial Day to think about the past, think of those who paved the way for me and for you, and honor them in some small way.

May you and your family have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day Weekend!
