Today’s Quote Monday is a tribute to Memorial Day today.

I remember when I was young my family went to Washington, D.C. on Memorial Day weekend. I remember the cherry blossoms and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. My father made a rubbing of a few names. I didn’t know why back then, but I know why now. My dad served in Vietnam with those people and he wanted to remember.

Thank you for reading/looking.
