Today is a day we remember. We remember the men, the women, who marched and flew and drove and rode.
We remember their sacrifice, their bravery. How they were often hard used, left damaged in spirit and body. And yet volunteered more.
How some came back broken. How some never came back at all.
Today is a day for the ghosts. For the memory. For honoring those who fought, and those who served behind the the lines – or all too often, right at the lines.
Take a day to see them, to hear the tales they had to tell. I recommend The Memory Project for some stories – here’s one from my Grandmother Pearl.
I think we’d all be better people if we sacrificed just a small portion of what they did.
