EDITOR'S NOTE: The following editorial was originally published on May 25, 2015. We pause today to honor the men and women who have died serving our country in the U.S. military, a sacrifice that can never truly be repaid. Many of us recall the observance's original name, Decoration Day, as a time to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. It is interesting to note that, according to the official Memorial Day history published by the Office of Public and Intergovernmental Affairs, it is believed that date was chosen because flowers would be in bloom all over the country.
