Happy Memorial Day, everyone.
It is perhaps a bit odd that we wish each other a happy Memorial Day, when it is a day that we remember those who have given their lives, most of them barely started, for our country.
It is a day to be sad, if we truly take some time today to contemplate their deaths. But it is also a day of happiness, for in appreciating their heroism, we acknowledge the wonder of the country that they died for. During a time when the value and goodness of America is being challenged with an intensity perhaps greater than at any time since the Civil War, let us celebrate our nation and give meaning to the sacrifice of those who paid the ultimate price.
And perhaps say a prayer too, for they are with God.
