Memorial Day is not about war. It’s about people. It’s about those dedicated individuals — most of them young — who died serving their country and their fellow Americans as well as future generations. In other words, all of us.

We Americans are at our best when we come together bonded by a noble purpose. And that’s the reason for the National Moment of Remembrance on Memorial Day.

Please come together by pausing for a moment at 3 p.m. local time, wherever you are, to acknowledge the sacrifice of our fallen.

Unfortunately, too many of our citizens forget to remember. We need to pay tribute to the nearly 2 million men and women who have died for us. Our freedoms should remind us of their sacrifice and our debt to them.

It is our duty to never forget them, to keep them in our hearts and in our actions. They were the best of the best — the pride of the USA. We owe them the commitment to reflect on what they did and to put remembrance into action. This means to give back to our country and to live honoring them every day, not just on Memorial Day.

To all of my friends out there — please join me in a moment of silence at 3 p.m on Memorial Day!

May our fallen rest in peace; may our country once again live in peace as well
