The Importance of Remembrance and Reflection on National Memorial Days

I hope this email finds you well.  As we each observe our respective countries’ memorial days, I would like to share some thoughts and personal reflections on the importance of these days in honoring the sacrifices made by the brave men and women who have dedicated their lives to the security and independence of our nations.


Growing up in Israel, Yom Hazikaron, the Israeli Memorial Day, was always an important day for my family.  Most of my family members have served in the Israeli military, and some still do today.  On Yom Hazikaron, we honor the fallen soldiers and civilian victims of terrorism.  I remember how the entire country would come to a standstill when the sirens sounded, signaling a time for reflection and honoring the sacrifices made by our fellow citizens.  As a child, I would visit my grandfather’s grave, Bernado Mejer, on this day.


The connection between Yom Hazikaron and Israel’s Independence Day, Yom Ha’atzmaut, serves as a poignant reminder of the price of freedom.   This sentiment is shared across many countries, each with its unique ways of honoring and remembering their fallen heroes.  As an international community, we should cherish these days of remembrance and respect the sacrifices made by those who have served and those who continue to do s  in our respective nations.

The Importance of Remembrance and Reflection on National Memorial Days

No matter our nationality or cultural background, it is essential that we take the time to reflect on the dedication and selflessness of those who have given their lives for our freedom and security.  In doing so, we can foster a deeper appreciation for the privileges we enjoy in America and inspire a commitment to upholding the values they fought for. As we approach our respective days of remembrance, let us keep the memory of the fallen and the bravery of those still serving in our hearts and minds. We can all find meaningful ways to honor their sacrifices, share their stories, and remember the importance of unity in the face of adversity.


I wish you a meaningful and reflective time during your nation’s memorial day, and looking forward to catching up soon.

Warm regards,

Andres “Reflecting” Mejer
