Sons, daughters, fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers…however they died, they died in service to us, and today we have a quiet day to show our appreciation. If you don’t know what Memorial Day means to those of us who have lost someone, have a look at a beautiful essay about it.
This beautiful photo from StartTheDay may come from another land, but it reminds me of the beach in Normandy, and of all those men of my grandfather’s generation who were lost on those lonely strips of sand. May their sacrifices be forever remembered.
