Have a memorable Memorial Day!
“Happy” Memorial Day?
Better, perhaps should be “Have a memorable Memorial Day!”
So the day arrives … unfurl the flag and put it out … feel good about remembering the sacrifice others made for us.
Perhaps we should wonder if we would be as worthy if called to make that sacrifice.
There is a contingent in the US that thinks preserving their own hides is a more worthy ideal, and they continually congratulate themselves for their lack of patriotic standards.
Some have reminded me that the time used to be called visiting day, when you went to the graves of love ones and cleaned them up. I like that idea too, and some old gravesites around here do not have professional grounds keepers to maintain their cemeteries, so graves are still maintained by families.
Anyway. It is as good of a time to remember our own mortality too.
