Even the young are celebrating Memorial Day. A lot of people no longer remember what Memorial Day is all about. It's always great to have a nice day off to have fun and relax with the family, but the reason we are able to do so is because of the men and women who serve this country. Sadly enough we have lost many of these people in the military. They are our loved ones and this day is in rememberance of them and how they gave their lives so that we may spend our days with our families doing the things that we love to do. So on this day, we are now spending our family tradition with the newest member of our family. Though he is only 10 months old, it is not too early to teach him what this day is about. That grave he is standing next to is where his uncle now rests at the Mounds City Memorial Cemetary. And that little boy's father is also a veteran. So being a military family, we pay our respects to our family and friends who lost their lives for us and remember them on this day. Then we have fun together as our loved ones would only want us to do.
