We live in a time when war has become a three-minute segment on the evening news. Each day men and women venture out directly into harm’s way. At home, their friends and families are distressed thinking of their safety and waiting for the day that their loved ones will walk through the door and return home.
Flowers play many roles in everyday life: they express comfort during loss; they say “I’m thinking of you”; they provide the final polish to a memorable event; they are an extension of people’s emotions. We cannot think of a more significant role for flowers to play then the one that unfolds every Memorial Day.
You, the Memorial Day Flowers Foundation, and our network of donors will show that we have not forgotten what our nation asks of some very special Americans. Please join us!
