Memorial Day is a time to reflect, not just on the people we have lost in our lives personally, but on those those no longer here in general. We honor our military, our families, our friends and neighbors gone from us, and even those we read about in the news and feel empathy for their family.
I’d like to think of candles shining bright this weekend, on flags waving in the breeze at half mast, for the heroes of each war and armed conflict. For those lost on 911, and all the military men in still unmarked graves, in foreign lands. For those lost in genocide, in senseless murder, in man’s inhumanity to man………….. and I would like to hope, as I do each and every Memorial Day to see my grandchildren, and great-grandchildren grow up in a more peaceful and sane world.
