Have a good Memorial Day, and see you tomorrow

When I was a kid, I once asked my dad if anyone he served with was killed in the war.

He just turned away without a word, his eyes glistening.

I never asked again.

Whatever you do today, wherever you are, take a moment to remember those who never came home.

We’ll be back tomorrow, as usual.

Eid Mubarak to all those celebrating today!

    Just remember that today is Memorial Day. The day when we remember and pay respect to our our war dead. It is not Veterans Day. Veterans Day is Nov. 11th that’s when we “thank” our veterans.
