Reflections On Memorial Day 2022 In Northwest Arkansas

About the Show:

In this short episode of the podcast, we reflect on the importance of Memorial Day and we talk about the history of the holiday and why it is such an important holiday of reflection and sacrifice here in the United States.

We also shared a Memorial Day poem from Lenore Hetrick. 


by Lenore Hetrick

If we remember those who are gone

Then they live again.

They are here once more, they smile and speak,

Just as do living men.

So let’s give our thoughts to the brave,

Upon this Memorial Day.

In spiritual fellowship, let us speak,

And listen to what they say.

For a soldier who died for his country must know

Much that he could tell,

And if we caught the message it might

Serve us oft and well.

So in our memories, let the dead

Linger often and long.

Recollections of that kind live,

And are like a springtime song.

All this and more on this episode of I am Northwest Arkansas.
