Memorial Day weekend continues. Three days for many, but the pain that occurred to create this holiday is purely evident.It all began as a celebration of those who perished during the Civil War.. Perhaps just too many other wars had taken place by the time it was expanded to dedicate a day to all lives lost during warfare.. We celebrate with barbeques and picnics, family outings and trips.. but pause for a moment and hear the distsant and faint sound of canon fire, musket fire, and gunfire from the past. And realize that even today wars are continuing (for better or worse) that will lead many more names and lost lives to be cherished for Memorial Days to come..
