Remember Our Heroes on Memorial Day


Dear Brothers, friends and relatives and clergy;

As published in the Queens Chronicle.

This Memorial Day because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no Memorial Day parades which I find sad. I do however  truly understand the reason and that is to keep us safe. I have served in the United States Navy during the Vietnam era and am a member of the American Legion Post # 103, Grand Knight of St. Anastasia Knights of Columbus in Douglaston and a member of the Queens Village Republican Club and believe there is something we can still do. This Memorial Day since there will not be parades or patriotic activities but we still can say a prayer for all those serving our country today and that is our brave men and women in the military. We also should offer prayers for all those serving and protecting us in our communities like our Doctors, Nurses, EMS, firefighters, and those in our police departments. We can also offer a moment of silence for all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice and gave their lives to keep us free. Remember this also: Let’s not forget the true meaning of Memorial Day and fly the American Flag if you can on that day.

Sincerely Yours,
Frederick R. Bedell Jr.
Grand Knight of St. Anastasia Knights of Columbus Council #5911



Remember Them All on Memorial Day

By Emily Toma

Remember those who served before.
Remember those who are no more.
Remember those who serve today.
Remember them all on Memorial Day.



Memorial Day is a Time to Remember

By Stacey Vila

Memorial Day is a time to remember that the American way of life is not cheap. 
It is of the brave. 
It’s been purchased by the lives of so many who have sacrificed for all to live free and happy.
The sacrifices made by men and women who have fought and died for freedom and liberty that we hold dear.
It is more important today than ever because if we don’t practice freedom and liberty it shall indeed be taken from us.
For freedom is not free.
And we remind ourselves on this day of the cost of standing up and living in freedom and liberty.
We remember those who came before and those of today.
We remember the lessons of standing up for freedom.
We respect and honor those who when everyone is running away- they run toward and answer the call for liberty.
