Happy Memorial Day #remember #soldiers #military


The origin of the holiday (from Time for Kids)

"The holiday got started on May 30, 1868, when Union General John A. Logan declared the day an occasion to decorate the graves of Civil War soldiers. Twenty years later, the name was changed to Memorial Day. On May 11, 1950, Congress passed a resolution requesting that the President issue a proclamation calling on Americans to observe each Memorial Day as a day of prayer for permanent peace and designating a period on that day when the people of the United States might unite in prayer. President Richard M. Nixon declared Memorial Day a federal holiday in 1971. Memorial Day is now observed on the last Monday of May. It is an occasion to honor the men and women who died in all wars."

As we celebrate the holiday, you can always support your local military, soldiers, and their families through various organizations.  These are the two that I support: Wounded Warrior Project & Adopt a US Soldier (AAUSS).

Newest @BarkBox delivery


 

It included 2 toys this time, 2 chewies, and a bag of treats.  Brooklyn happily took off with one of the toys as soon as I gave it to her.  These are apparently a hit with her.  If you're interested in one, I'd love it if you'd use my referral code. :)

Gwinnett's multicultural event

I found out about this the round about way.  But, once I'd heard about it, decided I needed to go.  I was somewhat disappointed though.  There were a lot of booths for various police precincts, family organizations, and Gwinnett area activities/places to go.  There wasn't so much of what I'd call "multi culture" there.  I counted 2 booths total for cultural groups.  It was an interesting visit, though, regardless of that lack.
