This last week, Mark Turnbull, host of Aging Today podcast, invited me to join him for the 2021 Memorial Day episode: The Importance of a Moment: Grief, Remembrance, and Memorial Day.

 

To prepare for the podcast, I researched the origins and traditions of Memorial Day. While browsing the internet, I ran across Taps Across America. Taps Across America promotes recognition of the National Moment of Remembrance on Memorial Day each year. Journalist Steve Hartman started this growing movement in 2020 as a way to unite a divided nation.

 

Taps Across America encourages everyone to stop what they’re doing for a moment of silence at 3:00 pm, on Memorial Day, May 31st. And if you’re a musician, consider playing taps at that time. It’s a fitting way to remember our fallen heroes. And to honor those currently serving our country.

PS – Our grief healing process includes remembering and remembrance. And sometimes we feel anxious or guilty that we’ll forget our departed loved ones. Put your mind at ease with this article: Afraid of Forgetting Them

If you’re struggling with the emotional process of grief...

I want to share a free assessment with you that can help you recognize the physical, cognitive and emotional reactions you may be experiencing. You’ll also be asked about your beliefs around grief, your behavioral reactions and we’ll do a deep dive on fundamental questions that have helped so many others.
