This Memorial Day

I looked to see what I wrote last year and if it still applied. Yes, remembering does.

All the best to you and your memories and also to those forgotten or who have no family to remember them perhaps here and on foreign fields. . 

This is what I wrote.

The energy behind Memorial Day in the United States of America is of recognizing and remembering those who had died while serving in wars for this country. It became a united effort out of different locations in this nation after our Civil War in the mid 1800's and recognized as a legal holiday soon after.

Over 150 years later we are still remembering those have died in service. 

I will spend today thinking of them and us today. How far we have come, how far we have not come.
And through it all I will be grateful to those no longer present in form who are still with us in mind and spirit, if not body.
