Episode 15: Red PoppiesOct 31, 2022
What does Memorial Day weekend look like for you? While some of us enjoy a fun weekend of BBQing and going to the lake, others are remembering their fallen or missing loved ones and taking the weekend to reflect on the significance of the loss of that loved one in symbolic ways.
I want to dedicate this episode to honoring those who have sacrificed and share a little history about what Memorial Day means. I will also be sharing why it gets confused with Veteran's Day and some of the symbolism of this special day.
What is the true meaning and symbolism behind Memorial Day? Well, let me tell you.
Together we unpack:
- Entering Memorial Day weekend (0:55)
- Distinguishing the difference between Memorial Day and Veteran's Day (2:00)
- The development of Memorial Day (2:31)
- The significance of red poppies (3:15)
- The National Moment of Remembrance (5:44)
- The tradition of the Missing Man Table (6:41)
Let us raise our glasses in a toast to remember our fallen, honor our POWs, MIA, and the success of our efforts to account for that. I want to hear about your lost loved one, and if anything, I said resonates with you, hit me up on the Insta - Let's connect more.
I am here to be your coach, your mentor, and your champion who believes in you and your transformation. Your next step is to TAKE THIS FUN 2-MINUTE QUIZ and find out how much gratitude and grit you have.
