No Memorial Day on my country, but still thanks.

It is important to honor the fallen, who gave their lives then, so that US citizens can rest easy today.
Too few prioritize remebrance these days.

I visited Arlington National Cemetary in October 2015. Took the metro there, went to the Kennedy family tomb, then the Tomb of The Unknown Soldier. I was fortunate enough to witness a veteran ensemble.
A group of 12-15 old men, in wheelchairs for the most part, sat and watched the "ritual" of the flower decoration placement. All the spectators around, end everyone else, was completely silent.

I then walked out of the south exit, and to the Pentagon a short walk from there. Gazed upon the 9/11 monument, then went to the Theodore Roosevelt Island in the Potomac.

Anyway, thoughtful Memorial Day to you, too!
