Many people in the workforce think of the Memorial Day holiday as a three day weekend. Most go on a short weekend vacation with their family, have a barbecue, and depending on the weather, may even enjoy a day at the pool. There is just one issue with this… That’s not what Memorial Day is all about. Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for the fallen soldiers in our armed forces. It’s a day to say thank you to those who fight for our country, and a day to look at the American Flag in a much different way than we normally do.
In 1971, Congress passed the National Holiday Act of 1971 to ensure a three-day weekend for federal holidays. Currently, Memorial Day is now celebrated by almost every state on the last Monday in May. Since the meaning of Memorial Day has diminished over the years, there have been efforts to try to get it changed back to the original date of May 30th.
Because we are a veteran-run business, here at Sharn Enterprises, Inc., we would like to encourage everyone to take some time out during their barbecues, boating trips, and day at the pool to remember those who have given their lives fighting for us so that we have the opportunity to do pursue all the wonderful things life in America has to offer.
In observance of Memorial Day, the Sharn Enterprise offices will be closed on Monday, May 25, 2015.
