Today is Memorial Day. We intend to go to the noon Memorial Day service in town. I hope you’ll find something to do today to remember those who have fought and died for our freedoms.
For a worthy Memorial Day tribute, I direct you to Ben Stein, speaking to those who have lost a loved one in the military. Here’s a taste:
A bad day for me is when I get stuck in traffic or have a toothache or notice that I have gained weight or my teenage son is surly.
A bad day for you is realizing that the only man or woman you have ever loved is gone for this lifetime.
As they say, read the whole thing.
