Yesterday was Memorial Day in the United States.
Did you put out your flag? Thank a veteran? Visit the grave of a loved one?
Memorial Day weekend can be busy. Graduations – high school and college – mark milestones for both student and parents. Weddings give opportunity for beautiful dresses, photographers, and musicians. Family reunions and picnics – even the opening of public swimming pools – cluster around the date. I hope you enjoyed the first weekend of “summer”.
Did this weekend mark any “firsts” for you? The first BBQ of the season? New summer clothes? First visit to a particular place? First attendance at a special concert or ceremony? My wish is that you did one or more. Live forward without forgetting the sacrifice of the people in history that make it possible for all the activities that will be our memories tomorrow.
