Video Script

Hi, I’m Randall, and I’m here at American Fork City Cemetery. Today is Memorial Day, the day when we remember those that have served in our military, who have fallen in action . . . military conflict. It’s a day to reflect on their sacrifices, uh, for our freedoms.

But many families get together also to remember their own family members who passed away. People come and uh, leave flowers, uh, clean the graves and headstones, and perhaps share stories about their family members.

Also, today when families get together, the kickoff for the summer season, and uh, people get together, have barbecues, enjoy time together, play games, and uh, just an opportunity for families to remember and reflect on the great privileges and blessings that we have.
