Take a few seconds on Memorial Day to remember why we mark the day. In a proclamation, President Trump has asked the nation to pray for “permanent peace” at 11 a.m. in whatever time zone you happen to be in. Then pause again at 3 p.m. and think of those lost in battle in “The Moment of Remembrance” — an event that was actually designated by Congress in 1950.
The president noted that these moments are particularly appropriate this year, which marks the 75th anniversary of Allied victories over Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan.
“As Americans, we will always defend our freedom and our liberty. When those principles are threatened, we will respond with uncompromising force and unparalleled vigor. Generation after generation, our country’s finest have defended our republic with honor and distinction,” Mr. Trump said.

“Our fallen warriors gave their last breath for our country and our freedom. Today, let us pause in quiet reverence to reflect on the incredible dedication of these valiant men and women and their families, invoking divine providence as we continue pursuing our noble goal of lasting peace for the world,” the president advised in his proclamation.
