Memorial Day 2012
Nations, as a rule, honor those who have laid down their lives in service of their country. National Geographic has a decent article explaining how that evolved into Memorial Day in America. The Department of Veterans Affairs also has a site for your research and curiosity. So, before you go do any thing too exciting today, remember Memorial Day, and all the people who have sacrificed to bring us to where we are now from Lexington and Concord to Afghanistan and Iraq. Rolling Thunder is also in town, and so are a variety of museums and memorials, so there is no reason not to take a few minutes and remember.
