Remembering Memorial Day Even After The Day Passed

Posted by cheryl - May 27th, 2015

On this Memorial Day holiday weekend, we pray for the peace of men who died while fighting for our country in past wars. In World War II, many American soldiers died on European soil defending Americans and Europeans against the Nazi scourge and aggressions in Europe. Those few people who hid from the Nazis and survived told stories of horror and hatred that had never been heard of before in modern history.
This Memorial Day weekend corresponds in date, coincidentally, with the Jewish holiday of Shavuot in which there is the renewal of faith as the Jewish people celebrate the growing of new wheat and other crops. On Shavuot there is always a specific traditional memorial service for the remembrance of the dead. On this same weekend, the Christians of the world celebrate Pentecost.
On this Memorial Day weekend, we celebrate the liberation from the Holocaust. Let us always remember that it was because of the American soldiers that fought against the Nazis that we have freedom in our country. It is because of the American soldiers that the remnants of Jewish people has been able to live and to prosper. For a more detailed experience on World War II, read Cheryl Freier’s novels on the Holocaust. Her website is www.thegraylinghiddentruthpoems.com. Her fifth novel, Echoes Resounding From The Past Hidden Truth Poems is being shown on the Good Reads website.
