The National Moment of Remembrance takes place at 3 PM on Memorial Day.  The Moment asks Americans to stop what they are doing for one minute in an act of national unity.

President Bill Clinton signed the act detailing the Moment on December 28, 2000.  Memorial Day has a rich history rooted in remembering people who have lost their lives serving in the American armed services.

Many people take holidays like Memorial Day for granted.  It's great to have celebrities who care enough to express gratitude via social media.  Empire's Bryshere Y. Gray used Twitter to wish the world a Happy Memorial's Day:


A few months ago Bryshere teamed up with Taraji P. Henson and Jussie Smollett proving the show's cast members never stop working!  The trio visited Japan where they showed their support by entertaining American service members and their families.
