America is hope

This past Monday was the Memorial Day.
And it made the weekend much better than many others we’ve had for a while.
The usual, “normal” bickering seemed to be at a much lower level.

It was good to see Americans from different backgrounds and political affiliations — all united in honoring the Memorial Day.

Memorial Day
It started out in the 1860’s as the Decoration Day — a day to honor the fallen soldiers of the Civil War.
A day when soldiers’ graves were decorated with flowers.

In 1971 the day became Memorial Day.
(Through a law passed by Congress Memorial Day was declared a national holiday.)

Hope
A day like this brings us together.
And it gives us hope.
Hope that we’ll soon heal our deep divide.
A deep divide which seem so prevalent anymore…

“America is hope.
It is compassion.
It is excellence.
It is valor.”
Paul Tsongas
