Memorial Day 2017

“My fellow Americans,

ask not what your country can do for you, 

ask what you can do for your country.”

– John F. Kennedy –

This year, on May 29th, the United States of America celebrates the Memorial Day that wants to remember who lost their life serving in the country’s armed forces. And I wanted to open my article with this quote from John F. Kennedy since that’s the question people who served the United States’ armed forces, asked to themselves.

Many celebrations will take place today. New York, with the support of the Department of Veteran Affairs, will host several military parades in honor of those who have bravely served the United States. Starting from Saturday in fact, New York has been animated by numerous members belonging to the US military and the Navy Band performed in Times Square among the applause of people. It has been a great moment, I can tell you.

Of course, today is grievous for families, thoughtful for all those who have been able to return home and for all of us – citizens, residents, and more generally whoever lives here in the United States, because we need to remember those who have donated their lives for our security and our freedom.
