Memorial Day

…is today. It’s the day when we here in the U.S. remember those who have died, especially in war (indeed the observance of Memorial Day dates back to the close of the Civil War). It’s a day when many Americans decorate the graves of lost friends and family with flowers or flags. But regardless of whether or not we make it out to a cemetery, we all spend the day with family and loved ones…grilling. I’ll be doing that today instead of posting. See you tomorrow!

UPDATE: An excellent account of the origins of Memorial Day can be found here.
