How does your country remember its fallen soldiers?


Not the officials. The people. How do people commemorate the fallen soldiers on the day designated for this rememberance?

Memorial Day, USA:

Memorial Day

Yom Hazikaron, Israel:

Yom Hazikaron

Please, don’t forget: Memorial day is the day America remembers its fallen soldiers. Those who never had the chance to become veterans, because they died.

Please stop for a second today and remember these men and women before you go to the BBQ party, the camping trip or the party at the club.

    Erről beszéltem pár hete.
    Ti másképp emlékeztek.
    Nálatok mindenkiben ott a tisztelet, és értik, tudják, mit jelentenek az emléknapok, mint pl. a Holokauszt emléknap…

    I did do that…the thinking, the tears, the remembering, the gratitude. A very important special day to me.

    No barbeque for me, for sure. However, I did come home to watch the National Parade, because Aidan was marching in it. Now, I’ve decided there can NOT be anything that feels more lame than watching a parade on TV (though if they cut the commentary, it would be improved)….but, watch it we did, for over an hour and a half, until – they got almost to Aidan’s part…..and……the streaming stopped.

    How frustrating is that? I have to say, though, I was really moved by the National “Moment of Silence”. Even though that sounded hokey, it was really very touching, and I did pray for my relatives and those I know who died fighting for their country. And, being glad my son is here to march.

      I think the moment of silence is a great reminder. Here when the sirens sound on Yom HaShoah or Yom Hazikaron, and vereyone stops and stands, I have no idea what goes throug their minds, but I am sure they are remembering.
