Memorial Day

This is more than a day off, the unofficial kick off to summer, or a day to do nothing. We remember our fallen heroes. I'm lucky enough to have two wonderful Marines who grew up next door to us and think they are fabulous men. One left Afghanistan on Thursday and the other arrived home for a weekend break on Saturday - it's a good Memorial Day.

In this same veign, recently I came across an article that mentioned something I'd never heard about and yet was very touched - yup, I supported the high humidty levels with tears. It's about the Arlington Ladies who escort the fallen to their graves.

The simple things really do matter.
