Our TRUE Banner

  Photo by Robert Linder Within the span of 39 days, we A m e r i c a n s will celebrate two National Holidays: Memorial Day, traditionally observed on May 30 th , and our Nation’s Birthday on the 4 th of July.   Originally, Memorial Day was called Decoration Day. It was and is the day proclaimed to remember our fallen servicemen and women, to decorate their graves with the American Flag, to posthumously honor and thank them for their sacrifice. Then comes the observance of our Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.   Still, to celebrate any National Holiday, we raise our b a n n e r high.

This portion of our year sees so much the enemy of our soul hates. Take the "jolly Jewish holiday of Purim…celebrated every year on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Adar (late winter/early spring).  Purim  2024 begins on  Saturday night, March 23 , and continues through  Sunday, March 24 …" [2]   Purim, meaning lots, comes from the Book of Esther . "It commemorates the (Divinely orchestrated) salvation of the Jewish people in the ancient Persian empire from Haman's plot "to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants, and women, in a single day."
