Memorial Day is usually celebrated with social gatherings and the presentation of our nation’s colors of red, white, and blue. While this year will look a little different with social distancing parameters due to COVID-19, we can stil honor our fallen heroes by doing the following:
1. VISIT A WAR MEMORIAL IN YOUR AREA.
Place flowers at the grave or honor their memory by paying your respects with family members of the fallen. Maintain social distancing at all times.
2. DONATE RESOURCES TO LOCAL REPUTABLE VETERAN ORGANIZATIONS Find an organization that honors and advocates for veterans and families that have lost loved ones in service to their nation.
3. FLY AN AMERICAN FLAG AT YOUR HOME OR WEAR PATRIOTIC COLORS Keep in mind that flags are typically flown at half staff in honor of the service members.
WE WOULD LIKE TO SHARE A BEAUTIFUL PRAYER TO STAY SAFE & HEALTHY:
We pray for those who are living in cities under quarantine to stay well this Memorial Day Weekend. We know that this virus has proven very contagious, but we also know that we do not fight such battles alone. We pray for health and well-being under this time. We pray protection and high levels of immunity for those who are at risk. We pray for the mental state of those who often battle depression or anxiety, as this time has not been easy. We pray that we would not only be well but that we would thrive with You spiritually during this time. We pray for all levels of health: physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
