People have myriad different feelings about Memorial Day. For me, that’s the real lesson of the day.
For some people it’s a day to honor the fallen. For some people it’s a contrived holiday to make the tragic seem heroic. For some it’s about acknowledging the terrible cost of war. For some it’s a celebration of freedoms so essential that people were willing to sacrifice their lives for them.
Please be mindful of others in their grief. In some cases you can help by letting them tell you something. In other cases it might help if you can tell them something. And sometimes you help just by being alive.
