Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, began as a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service. To help re-educate and remind Americans of the true meaning of Memorial Day, the "National Moment of Remembrance" resolution was passed in December of 2000. It asks all Americans “to voluntarily and informally observe, in their own way, a moment of remembrance and respect - pausing from whatever they are doing for a moment of silence or listening to Taps” at 3pm, local time.
