I never forget that the freedoms we have (a small one of which is our ability to express our sometimes very diverse opinions on this message board) were "paid for" by the ultimate sacrifice of so many that we were related to, knew of, or even, of course, didn't know. Although Monday is the day set aside specifically to honor them all, and we will, I know that many of us do it almost every day, as well we should!
Celebrate Memorial Day !!
And an additional thank you to the Eagle Scouts, who (I just learned) were the ones who ‘uncovered’/cleaned around the Veterans’ metal plaques at the cemetery. I had never seen that done before, and it was a great help to those of us who find that difficult to do. Thank you, and a shout-out to whoever came up with the project and organized it!
