Memorial Day

I'm sorry to have missed Memorial Day, this year, but couldn't go without posting something...a day late, I know. Memorial day was first observed on May 30, 1868, by New York and then a few years later by all northern states. After World War I it was recognized by most states and for any fallen solder who fought in a war, not just the Civil War.

I'd like to take a moment to thank those fallen soldiers, but also their families and friends, for whom their sacrifice was most deeply felt.
