LET’S PRAY 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.
