Memorial Day 2021

To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die. ― Thomas Campbell

Today is Memorial Day in the United States, a day when we honor the memory of the men and women who have died in military service. We also celebrate the arrival of summer, but because of the reason for the holiday, it never feels right to me to say “Happy Memorial Day,” so instead, I’m wishing you a day filled with love and beautiful memories.

This year, we also remember the nearly 600,000 lost to the pandemic in this country.

As life returns to a new normal in many parts of the US and Memorial Day celebrations are becoming possible again, be safe and enjoy your day, but please take a moment to remember those who gave all, recognize the sacrifices of our military personnel and thank them for their service.

    I agree, “happy” does not seem appropriate. This is a day which is about remembering the men and women who gave us everything. My Dad was a WWII vet. For me the day is about remembering what he did, what he went thru and what a strong man he was. As were all the Bomber Group men he reunioned with while he lived.
