As I’m usually at an observance on Memorial Day, I like to have a picture from that actual Memorial Day (first known as Decoration Day) to share with everyone. This year’s is, due to some mildly weird circumstances, not my best, but the sentiment is heartfelt.
I sincerely hope all of you were able to make it to a Memorial Day service of some sort, be it at a church as this was or at a local cemetery or war memorial. Our lives are so easygoing, really, especially when compared to that of a soldier at any time. Thousands upon thousands have laid down their lives for their fellow Americans. The very least we can do is honour them with one day of rememberance.
They are not forgotten, their sacrifice and that of their loved ones is not forgotten.
