Mondays are for Memories – Memorial Day, 2011

Five years ago Memorial Day also fell on May 30th. That year we were at Pilgrim Pines Conference Center in New Hampshire and were able to join them in a Memorial Day time of reflection. To those who have given their all, we all owe a debt of gratitude. And to those who continue to offer their all, we owe a world of thanks.

Lest We Forget – May 30, 2011

Memorial Day 2011
I have never been able to think of the day as one of mourning; I have never quite been able to feel that half-masted flags were appropriate on Decoration Day. I have rather felt that the flag should be at the peak, because those whose dying we commemorate rejoiced in seeing it where their valor placed it. We honor them in a joyous, thankful, triumphant commemoration of what they did.
