Memorial Day 1940

Memorial Day May 1940

     The barbeque was served family style on plates by the side of the road.
     Beef ribs were almost too big to believe, and bread this size was a wonder.
     Later we fished in a stream that was so clear that you could see right down to the bottom as the fish winked and laughed at us.
     But the conflict that was about to come that made the end of May our portal to the summer season in America, would also take away this world we knew and treasured, forever.
     Now, 84 years later, the images reappear like a smoke dream that is gone with the wind.
     The words from Walt Whitman are eternal:
               The moon gives you light,
               And the bugles and the drums give you music,
               And my heart, O my soldiers, my veterans,
               My heart gives you love.

     Aside from being the Summer ’24 opening day for swimming pools, parks, and beaches across America, Memorial Day May 27, 2024 in the United States was meant to honor members of the armed forces of today and yesterday.
     We extend our salute to all who serve(d) our country while we continue to pray for peace on our planet.
