On Memorial Day week-end, I have often posted a personal essay dealing with the subject.
Today, I'd like you to write one of your own. Tell us what the day means to you. Give us a written picture of someone you have loved and lost in the military.
Somehow, we have gotten to let Memorial Day weekend the beginning of summer activities instead of giving tribute to those who lost lives in one American conflict or another.
Write a paragraph, a full story or just some thoughts jotten down and then share them with us.
