Memorial Day

Let's don't forget to put the bar-b-que and beers down for a few minutes this weekend and remember why we have Monday off.

Every year for memorial day I typically write a fairly long post honoring our war dead with an essay and a few photos. This year I will keep it simple - a heartfelt thank you to all of our service members past, present and future.

A small poem by Moina Michael sums my feelings up.

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.

Thank you for this blog entry! Too many people *do* forget and that's a sad state of affairs.
