Commemoration is to do something in memory of people, groups or events. For an act of commemoration to occur in the purest sense, three elements must be ubiquitous: the physical presence of people participating in the act; an appropriate venue, such as memorials, cemeteries, and the like; and thirdly, some form of observance of remembrance must take place. Over time, the fabric of commemoration consists of three key principles that form a solid intertwined base: recognition, respect and reflection. In essence, these three principles form the Three ‘R’s’ of Commemoration.
