Many people observe Memorial Day by visiting cemetaries and memorials. A national moment of remembrance takes place at 3 p.m. local time. Another tradition is to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff from dawn until noon local time. Volunteers often place American flags on each grave site at National Cemeteries.
One of the longest-standing traditions is the running of the Indianapolis 500, an auto race which has been held in conjunction with Memorial Day since 1911. It runs on the Sunday preceding the Memorial Day holiday. The Coca-Cola 600 stock car race has been held later the same day since 1961. The Memorial Day golf event has been held on or close to the Memorial Day weekend since 1976.
Because Memorial Day is generally associated with the start of the summer season, it’s common tradition to inaugurate the outdoor cooking season on Memorial Day with a barbeque.
The National Memorial Day Concert takes place on the west lawn of the United State Capitol. The concert is broadcast on PBS and NPR. Music is performed, and respect is paid to the men and women who gave their lives for their country.
A Special Wildlife Treasure Chest is about to open! Animals, Plants and a Special Land along with many Special People will be the key ingredients to this special adventure that is about to unfold.
As a Resilience Living Professional my coaching extends from helping clients with personal goals such as the clutter in their life to bringing out the passion in their business life to having “Love” in their life and crossing bridges to new opportunities. Each day unique treasures unfold before their eyes as these precious people begin to see that special unique quality that is all their own.
Treasures can be found all over as we step into every moment of every day. Leaping into the unknown to find these treasures brings meaing into our lives. With this said, “Life is an Adventure.” We really need to remember this.
So, I have decided to do just that. I am going on an adventure to Yellowstone National Park!!!!! I will be there all summer!
Just the planning alone on choosing where I am going to stop along the road has opened up so many doors to supportive people. I have talked to people in Amarillo, TX. Colorado Springs, Co., Cheyenne, WY., Evanston, WY., and Island Park, ID. The photos and activities alone that I am reading about are setting the stage for a summer not to be forgotten.
So, if you care to join me virtually and I do hope you do, send me your email address and I will make sure you receive my blog along the way. You can also come back to Brook N’ Dell Virtual Village, as well, and enjoy my photographic journey as it unfolds before my eyes and those of my side-kick, Gracie.
Look forward to maybe seeing you there as well. I will be staying at the Lake Area within Yellowstone. So, there are lot’s more to come as I set the plans into action. Wishing you Happy Travelin’ as well!
