memorial day 2012 and all the rest of them

Memorial Day: a holiday to remember members of the military who have died in U.S. wars; at least, that's what it was supposed to be  (Maybe it should also have been for civilians who have died in U.S. wars).  Over time, it has become a day to remember all who have passed before us.  For other people it is a day that unofficially marks the beginning of summer.

For me, it has become, and will probably always be, a day to remember my brother Ronnie, who died last year on Memorial Day. That is a bit of redundant statement.  I guess it's just a day to remember the day that he left us, because I remember and think about him every day.

The good thing about Memorial Day is, Valleyfair opens!
