In retrospect, there’s another reason I’m very glad we took our trip when we did a few weeks ago. Having just been to Arlington, and the WWII Memorial, Antietam and Gettysburg, etc. it’s much easier for me to come into today with the proper level of remembrance.
It’s certainly nice to have a three day weekend, and I’m glad the unofficial start to the Summer season is upon us, but this day is about more than that. Amid your celebrations today, take a moment to remember those who have made it possible and say thank you to those who are still with us.
