A Meaningful Memorial Day

Image from Darwyn Cooke’s New Frontier.

It always sounds weird to me to wish someone a Happy Memorial Day. I’m not sure that happiness is the right emotion on a day for remembering the people who died protecting their country. On the other hand, I’m not sure that it’s not the right emotion when combined with gratitude. Either way, I’m certainly not going to refrain from eating bratwurst and potato salad with friends; I just hope to do some reflecting as well.

For those of you in the US (or anyone else who wants to participate), I hope the day is meaningful for you.

  1. The nerd herd and I celebrated with brats, burgers, potato salad, beans and a little Pathfinder :)We're thankful we're able to roleplay in this free country of ours!
