A new video about Memorial Day has been released by Bill Heid, an entrepreneur and the executive producer of Heirloom Audio Productions, that not only explains why the holiday is important, but connects it to the biblical heritage of America.

“God calls his people to remember their past,” the video, a series of patriotic drawings, explains. “History is the life force, the glue that holds civilization together.”

It recommends on a holiday like this Americans should “focus on and remember those who have fallen. … and also remember without a biblical contest Memorial Day becomes empty of any real meaning.”

He urges American to return “to the true source of history: Christ.”

Heid explained the video is to put Memorial Day in its true context, and as part of that, revealed 15 percent of sales from some of his companies’ popular products will be donated to the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S., AMVETS, Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund and the Patriot Guard Riders.

He announced the video is free to use in churches and Memorial Day functions.

“This Memorial Day, let’s take some time to focus on those who have served our country,” Heid said. “But let’s also remember that without a biblical context, Memorial Day becomes void of any real meaning.”
