Today is Memorial Day, for the good old U.S. of A., but I think the day "transcends" borders, North America, and her Allies. I have heard reference to a "lack of heroes" recently, but I think it depends where you "look". The Stanley Cup Playoffs have started, with Detroit and Pittsburgh playing Game 2 tonight. "Heroes?" Hardly! Exceptional athletes, yes, but not "heroes". Take the time to stop and remember, there must be a family member somewhere in the "lineage" that has given the "ultimate sacrifice". Now, there is a hero. By the way, don't forget to "hug a Vet", and tell them how proud you are of them, and how they are held in the "highest regard". If it wasn't for them, we would all be "under a jackboot" or "Red"........ Take a walk through Arlington, in Virginia, Flanders Field, in Belgium, or Beechwood, in Ottawa, or other similar "resting places", you will be in "fine company". Please, "remember".
