I'm working today. I'm also stopping for a moment, and remembering.
Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer, a day for cookouts and picnics, right? Sure. It's also, and most saliently, a day to remember the fallen. There are people we should thank for their service today -- but they're unable to reply.
Our pleasant holiday exists because men (and women) put themselves between their fellow citizens and the terrifying destruction of war, just as other men and women in other lands are doing right now. War is not normal; war should not be the default state of life on our planet. But wars exist, and wars chew up soldier's lives, always. Reluctant or resolute, they served and fell. Remember their sacrifice.
