Day 149/365 - On Memorial Day


Memorial Day, for some people, has become just a holiday Monday that you get off work, go to barbeques and buy stuff on sale. But how many of us really commemorate the deeper meaning of the holiday? It honors those who have died serving in our country’s armed forces. And in doing so, it makes us hope not to lose our loved ones to war ever again, or at least it does for me. It makes me wonder if we can coexist and thrive in peace with one another, within our nation and among all others. Can peace persevere so that we don’t have to fight violence with violence? Time will tell, but if enough of us believe so - I think it’s possible.
