Story By Jeanne Gigli

Mount Arlington - The tradition of remembrance originated in the days and months after the Civil War in this country. It (May 30) was specified as a day to decorate the graves of those who died in service to America. This year's

celebrations sparked a renewed loyalty to Old Glory as we also remembered those innocent victims who perished on Sept. 11.

Amid the joyous parades were local fire and police departments, mounted police officers, civic organizations, representatives from the Boy and Girl Scouts of America, high school marching bands, classic and antique cars and tractors, politicians, rescue squads and others who were all being cheered by flag-wavin' boys, girls, moms and dads.

This first Memorial Day after the heinous and senseless attacks on our country was definitely not only a day to bring family and community together to be proud, but also a day to remember the newest victims of the global war on terrorism and to hope and pray for a safer future.
