    I didn’t know (or just didn’t remember) about the moment of remembrance law.

    Looks like the ads are celebrating the holiday on the PhxP.

    I usually remember my dad who survived WW2, passing in 2000. A minute of remembrance for those who paid with their lives; so we are free to remember going to the river a week before the holiday to beat the crowds. As one of the rare few who shed blood for my country in civilian service, I appreciate the work of the armed forces much more than I ever did before.

    Memorial Day is always a bit sad for me. I had a step-nephew who was taken out by a sniper in Baghdad in 2007. He had been in and out of minor crime as a teen and then went on to drugs. In one moment of sanity he saw a doctor who thought he had ADHD. My spidey teacher sense always thought he had a learning issue, but no one would listen to me. He got sober, joined the army, and became quite the scholar (and a Christian) through reading the classics, including the Bible, on his own. My own nephew almost lost his life in Afghanistan a few years later. Thankfully, we got him back after a lot of medical care and he he happily selling real estate.

    I take a few minutes to remember every year. Almost all the men in my family have served if they are over 40.
