“If silence is ever golden, it must be beside the graves of fifteen-thousand men, whose lives were more significant than speech, and whose death was a poem the music of which can never be sung.”
— James A. Garfield, May 30, 1868, Arlington National Cemetery
Memorial Day is not about barbecues, car sales, concerts, parades, or discounts on refrigerators. Don’t celebrate Memorial Day. Observe it. Thoughtfully.
