Remember the fallen at 3 p.m.

Longtime Brookhaven resident Carmella LaSpada will once again today mark the holiday with her very own special salute. It's one we can all emulate. LaSpada simply wants the entire country to take a moment at exactly 3 p.m. to mark a moment of silence to honor those who have fallen in service to their country. LaSpada, who now lives in Washington, D.C., heads an organization called No Greater Love, which works to honor our soldiers. She has been pushing the issue of a national moment of silence on Memorial Day for several years now. Doesn't seem like a lot to ask. Remember, today is not about sales at the mall, or barbecues, or the unofficial start of summer. Take a moment at 3 p.m. to remind yourself and those you hold dear of the high price so many have paid so we can enjoy this holiday. Thanks for reminding us again, Carmella.
