Oxymoron..."Happy Memorial Day!"
It is silly when you think of it.
I know it is the unofficial kick-off of "summertime" and good things ahead in this season...especially in New England when the warm weather gets set to arrive.
But we need to remember those not with us...those who have served others with the supreme sacrifice of their own lives.
Some on front lines, some behind the scenes...national, local, civic...so many gone before us.
And the personal losses too. Remember them all.
Send up some prayers and thanks for what they have given for us... those no longer with us ...but STILL WITH US.
It is a heart day.
So enjoy your loved ones near and the good times of being together and those gone on ahead lighting our way.
Remember and Love them all.
