In Others’ Words: Never Forget
Memorial Day is personal … to my friends whose husbands died while they were on active duty in the United States military. To my friend whose son was killed while leading a patrol in Afghanistan.
Perhaps it is personal to you too, or to someone you know. Memorial Day brings to mind a name … a face … a loved one who will always be missed.
Yes, they are heroes and heroines.
But to you, to me, they are family. Friends.
