Honoring The Fallen

Last week’s poll focused on how we memorialize the fallen men and women who protect our country. We are forever grateful for their sacrifice.

Our question centered on a little-known resolution that passed Congress over 15 years ago instructing American citizens to observe a pause in the day on Memorial Day. We asked if the poll-taker was aware, and if they observed that pause.

The vast majority – almost 2/3 of those who took the poll- indicated they weren’t aware of this pause but resolved to do so. About 1/3 said they already observe this moment of silence.

As usual, Axiom readers demonstrate intelligence and care for things greater than themselves. We will revisit this question a year from now.
