Memorial Day - United States of America
Today is the unofficial beginning of summer, a weekend of family, picnics, and parades. For those of us here in the USA, it is also a day to remember those who have given their lives to keep us free.
Across the street from our home is Xavier University. There is a tiny park next to the Military Science Department where there are memorials for Xavier ROTC (Reserve Officers Training Corps) graduates who have died in combat.
So, as we enjoy the freedoms to celebrate the beginning of summer we also remember those who helped to us to keep our freedom.
All the best,
