I do not normally write much about Mother’s Day because there is almost always emough flowers around to satisfy the demand and that appears to be the case this year as well. So I will instead talk about Memorial Day.
This year I plan to attend the Memorial Day Flowers organization event in Arlington Va at the national cemetary.
This event has been held for the last thirteen years and is a tribute to the men and women that lie at this sacred site and to their families. Not only does this happen in Arlington but cemetaries across the nation hold similar events with the guidenec of the Memorial Day flowers Foundation.
The organization collects donated flowers from many companies and distributes them to the families showing up to pay their respects with the goal of having a flower on every grave. This event shows the power of flowers in many ways. I will not say much more about this until I experience it myself and then I will share my thoughts.
