Unfortunately this Memorial day looks thunderous and rainy. The parade will go on, no doubt, regardless. My dad will be carrying the flag.
These pictures are from two years ago, (because last year I was in France).
In a small way, today we pause, as a culture, to reflect on the wars of our past and also the three wars we are currently embroiled in, and the profit we make from our military machine ... remember the sacrifices of those no longer with us, and also celebrate the beginning of the summer season, at last!
Happy Happy Memorial day.
