Very good afternoon, my Healing Well buddies:
Well, this weekend is Memorial Day weekend, traditionaly the start of the summer season.
Well, at least for me, summertime, outdoor, activities are not what they used to be, pre-MS. Oh well. As it is.
But...this weekend is Memorial Day weekend....a time for all Americans to tip our hats to our veterans.
And it always takes me back...to about 10 years ago...when I was in Washington D.C. for a family reunion.
My immediate family and I went to Arlington Cemetary.
I do not know how many of you have ever been to Arlington, but it is quite a humbling experience.
Acres upon acres upon acres of tombstones.
Then we went to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers.
My, oh my. Talk about solemn. Then as we were there
a sargeant, announced that the children of the blank school in blank Ohio were going to place a wreath at the tomb. about five gradeschoolers paced this wreath, and then a soldier came ot and blew taps.
Man o' man....the whole group of 200 or so people there were this far from crying.
I HIGHLY suggest checking it out if anyone gets the chance.
Happy Memorial Day. John
