Memorial Day

We are so thankful for the men and women who have served our country in the armed forces. People like my great-grandfather, who fought in France in WWI and watched his best friend die. (Now, my grandfather bears the name Harvey in his memory.) And people like Aaron's grandfather, above, who served General MacArthur in WWII.

In a foreign country, we celebrate quietly, replacing the fireworks and riverside festivals with sugar cookies and Wee Sing America, instilling in our children a love for the United States of America and the amazing people who live there.
