6. Teach (your) kids about Memorial Day

Memorial Day is important to America’s heritage and its legacy, but if we don’t teach children about it, the freedoms we hold dear are that much closer to slipping away. As Ronald Reagan once famously said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

Take the opportunity this Memorial Day to teach your kids–or someone else’s–about this important holiday and its history.
