The History of Memorial Day #infographic


Appropriate and timely for the holiday today in the U.S., imortuary.com brings us I Remembered A Vet Today infographic about the history and ways to commemorate Memorial Day.

Memorial Day is commemorated in many ways to show respect for those who have died for serving our country.  Whether visiting a national cemetary or gathering with friends and family, take time to participate in the National Moment of Remembrance at 3 p.m. local time to observe a moment of silence.

I have never heard of Michael Moina but the tradition that people wear poppies in honour of those who died on the battlefield is coming from the poem "In Flanders Fields" by John McRae who wrote during WW I:

"In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row"

He wrote the final version on december 8th 1915.
