Memorial Day Remembrances
More recently still, this holiday has come to symbolize a day where we embark on more personal expressions of memory about those departed loved ones who we dearly miss. Many of these people engaged in battles of a different kind- brave bodies nobly fighting terminal diseases until they can no longer battle their pernicious house guests, and in some cases the weakening effects of the curative medications themselves. For me, this day is a reminder of having lost my dad a few short years ago (who was a veteran of the US Army), and it reminds me of everyone who I have loved who is no longer here.
Join me in lifting a glass to honor the memory of all of the beloved people that we have lost. Please feel free to share any thoughts or memories.
When I watched Glee this week, their amazing cover of In My Life (The Beatles) struck me as the perfect song of remembrance.
