This is Memorial Day weekend filled with the official beginning of summer activities. Yes, and it the time set aside to honor those who have served the country and have since parted.
When I was young my parents and grandparents called Memorial Day Decoration Day. That was the day that we would all go to the cemetery and decorate the graves or memorials of loved ones passed especially the veterans. Some have faithfully carried on these traditions. Others like me have forgotten how important those few minutes can be. The least I can do is pause in silence and remember and say a prayer for the safe return of all of those serving.
