Observing Memorial Day in the Real & Virtual Worlds- Silky Soulstar Reporting...

MEMORIAL DAY observances ranging from the sublime to the obviously salacious abound in Second Life; and are open to everyone from all corners of the Globe, and from every space found in our cozy little metaverse.

I’ve always found it impressive when I meet people from just about any country you can imagine, and yet they KNOW very well about my USA holidays.  Monday, May 26, 2014 is MEMORIAL DAY in the United States.  It is a day of recognition of our past and present military servicewomen and servicemen.  And it is particularly a day of remembrance for our fallen heroes, like my own Uncle and Godparent.

Although it is celebrated with a special day of observation in the U.S., I find it touching that it is also acknowledged by my global friendships.  And for that I am grateful, as well as proud.

Our Avatars exist in a metaverse, but are guided by RL people with hearts and souls.  So it is with honor, really, that I write this destination guide for the SL Enquirer about how our unique virtual world recognizes the very REAL sacrifices made by living souls, working to ultimate ends to keep peace for global citizens.

At Veterans Isle (192, 201, 23) you will find an in-world replica of the Real Life monument that reads 


   If you are looking for a great place to spend a few moments of reverence this Monday, May 26th 2014, the U.S. Military Veterans Center is a must-see destination for your teleporter.  You can also donate to the Wounded Warrior Project while you are there.

There are a host of other venues in SL well worth a visit this Memorial Day, 2014.  If no times are noted below, the event goes for the entire day.

·      One of the most well done Memorial Day entertainment venues is FRANK’S ELITE JAZZ where members are invited to wear military uniforms or 40’s attire.  Frank’s has also built a WWII Hangar replica on its outdoor patio that is worth checking out.  Members at Frank’s pay a group joiner fee that is well worth the price of 500L, however live performances are free provided you show up in formal attire.
