Memorial Day Surprise | Children’s Books Read Aloud | Stories for Little ones

Memorial Day Surprise
by Theresa Golding (Author), Alexandra Artigas (Illustrator)

It’s Memorial Day and Marco and Mama are going to see the parade. On their way, they pass Marco’s grandfather’s home. They typically stop to see Grandfather, but these days Mama is in a rush because she has promised Marco a surprise. Marco cannot picture what the surprise may be. Could it be the marching band? The fire engines? The candy tossed to the crowd by a woman dressed as the Statue of Liberty? Mama promises that it will be a much better surprise than candy. As the parade goes by, Marco wishes his grandfather were with him to take pleasure in it. Then, marching down the street, come the veterans, wearing uniforms and shiny medals. But look! Who is that top them? Marco by no means imagined the kind of surprise in shop for him.

Memorial Day
Memorial Day stirs up memories in every single Veteran
These Veterans have had a lifetime to relive the horrors of war that they witnessed lengthy just before there was a condition identified as “Post-Traumatic Tension Disorder.”
They have spent a lifetime attempting to suppress the painful memories of watching their comrades, their friends, die in service of the nation. Even the passage of decades doesn’t make that a excellent deal easier when these memories come rushing to the surface.
There’s no practical way to tabulate the human story of every single and every single loss this nation has suffered in each war ever fought. Reciting a bunch of numbers seems almost inhuman.
Because it is not about numbers it’s about men and women.
Do you believe you can spare a handful of minutes nowadays to consider about these fallen soldiers oneself? It is not the least you can do, but it’s fairly close.

  3. Wow, CD, the shot in your comment speaks – screams!! – volumes. That is just a terrific catch!! I can feel her pain and anguish. Reminds me of the scenes one sees all the time at the Vietnam wall …

    Congrats on a great memorial image and an important reminder to all of us what the real meaning of Memorial Day is. Your words speak volumes as do the images on the flag, especially those of the coffins. it always angered me that the Bushies refused to allow us to see such images because we, as a people, need to be constantly reminded of the very human costs of war.

    One of your best, CD!!
