1. #MemorialDay2019. This video of President Eisenhower in 1964 with Walter Cronkite a haunting reminder of what this day means.

Fitting it comes in spring. Cemeteries are green. Flowers in bloom. A backdrop for the "new birth of freedom" Abe Lincoln prayed for at Gettysburg.
2. D-Day 1944 and Midway 1942 both happened in the first week of June. We honor the fallen but we need to also honor those who served & continue to bear scars of battle, many unseen. We still have homeless veterans many in need of care. Please ask Congress to support our vets.
3. It was never better said: "With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle
4. and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations." A. Lincoln
