President Biden Memorial Day 2024 Proclamation Prayer Peace

Memorial Day 2024: President Biden honors fallen heroes, urges prayer for peace. Let's unite in remembrance and gratitude. #MemorialDay2024

On Monday, May 27, 2024, Memorial Day will be observed throughout the United States. This day serves as a time to honor and remember the courageous women and men who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

In a heartfelt presidential proclamation released by the White House, titled "A Proclamation on Prayer for Peace, Memorial Day, 2024," President Biden expresses gratitude and remembrance for the fallen heroes. He acknowledges the profound loss felt by families and loved ones of those who served in the Armed Forces, emphasizing that their sacrifices will never be forgotten.

This Memorial Day, we reflect on the profound dedication of our service members who laid down their lives for the idea of the United States of America - a nation founded on the principles of equality and liberty for all. Their selfless acts of bravery and valor continue to inspire us to uphold the ideals they fought for.

To all those who mourn the loss of a loved one in uniform, including our Gold Star Families, and those awaiting the return of missing or unaccounted for service members, our nation stands with you in solidarity. The pain of loss on this day is immeasurable, but we hope you find comfort in knowing that the sacrifices made by your loved ones will always be remembered and honored.

As a nation, we vow to continue striving for a more perfect Union in honor of our fallen heroes. Congress has designated Memorial Day as a day of prayer for permanent peace, urging Americans to observe a National Moment of Remembrance at 3:00 p.m. local time to honor those who have served.

President Biden calls upon all Americans to join in prayer and reflection at 11:00 a.m. on Memorial Day, encouraging the display of flags at half-staff until noon as a sign of respect. Families and communities are invited to share tributes to fallen service members through the Veterans Legacy Memorial website, allowing us to learn more about the lives and contributions of those laid to rest in veteran cemeteries.

As we observe Memorial Day, let us remember the courage, sacrifice, and dedication of our fallen heroes. May their memories inspire us to work towards a future of peace and unity, honoring their legacy with gratitude and respect.
