Memorial Day

Monday, May 25, 2009
To many Memorial Day means the unofficial start of summer, backyard bar-b-cues and outdoor celebrations. But for so many others, Memorial Day has an entirely different meaning. For me, a year ago, it signified the above, but a year later, and the first Memorial Day without my father, Memorial Day is a day for me to remember my father and the contributions he made, as a soldier, to this country.

So for my father and for countless other Americans who have fought for our glorious freedom, I give thanks most especially today, but also every other day of the year.
