To Reflect and Honor

To Reflect and Honor

Flowers and flags are filling up national cemeteries on this Memorial Day. 

It’s one of the many ways to honor the fallen men and women who’ve served.  Families, friends and complete strangers have been stopping by all weekend, after not being able to last year because of COVID.   The annual National Moment of Remembrance takes place this afternoon.  This is when people are asked to stop for a moment of silence, wherever they are, at 3 p.m.

And across the country people continue to reflect on our past as today marks 100 years since the start of the Tulsa Race Massacre. 

President Biden will head to Oklahoma tomorrow to meet with the last three survivors.  He’ll be visiting a neighborhood known as “Black Wall Street.”  It was destroyed when a white mob attacked people and businesses in 1921, killing hundreds.  No one was ever charged and families were never reimbursed.  A congressional committee is considering reparations.
