It’s been said before. Most of us think of Memorial Day as “the unofficial start of summer,” with the first trip of the season to the beach, a backyard barbecue, or a good reason to sleep in on a Monday morning. The memorials, especially when I was younger, seemed all about the distant past. The evening news would show the President laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Solder, and go on with other events of the day. This Memorial Day is a little different.
