Holidays – Memorial Day

Westminster and I’ll take a beach day, even if it’s foggy. We’re hoping your Memorial Day Weekend is filled with sun and fun (and no traffic to get stuck in on the way to where you’re going like we did!) Hey, did you know that Memorial Day was originally known as “Decoration Day” because it was a time set aside to honor the nation’s Civil War dead by decorating their graves? I won’t be decorating any graves this weekend, but I will take time to salute those who serve so that we remain safe… and free. Along those lines, here’s a thought from Joseph Campbell: “A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” Cheers to that! And to a happy weekend.
