Memorial Day

It is Memorial Day, which is rightly a day to remember our fallen heroes. The men and women who died while in service to our country, while in defense of our freedom and liberty, deserve the plaudits they receive on this day.

Another tradition exists for some, the visiting of family graves in local cemeteries. I explore that tradition a bit in my column for today's Boston Herald. If you have a few moments to read what I wrote, I hope you'll enjoy it.

In any case, I wish you a wonderful day, however you spend it, and I thank you for coming here.

Soon, with more better stuff.

I shall spend the morning remembering those who've gone on before, some making the greatest sacrifice, others who were close but passed peacefully.

Very well said. We stopped at 3pm local time to be silent a minute and remember, and i've been thinking about various relatives and people who are gone all day as i've worked.

Beautifully written, as always, Jim.

I agree, we must never forget our war hero.
