Now THAT would be a Christmas to remember. Oh, no, I kept saying as I was drawn into this story ... delightfully, charmingly penned wonderment. A Gift? Indeed. Brings to mind some mischiviousness (?) of my own (like breaking Gramma's bed, thinking it was a trampoline. ON Christmas Eve. YIIIPE ... did Santa know? That time, no. Didn't find out for about three months. LOL). Well done, Linda, and Merry Christmas!
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Remembering Memorial Day (Article) - 5/28/2013 11:43:35 AM
I remember those cool mornings in the cemetery. Frightened by the volleys from the Honor Guard. Until recently, my mother would join in the festivities every year. The last couple of years when she drove, she would place flowers near the time when she could get there. My father washed out medically in 1941. But he became a veteran in the eyes of the local VFW and American Legion.
Thank you for sharing the history that I did not fully know. During those times my grandmother would forbid my father from playing “taps” on his bugle because it reminded her of so many of her friends and family who lost their lives in world wars one and two. I still have that bugle hanging from my fireplace with no one to play Taps on It.

We think symbols such as flag and flower important and try to empower the dead with this or that heroism. We tout their legacy and sing tearful songs. But I am willing to bet that my fellow veterans, rank on rank, would trade every note of Taps and every politician's rant and Mother's lament for a thing both real and possible. Peace. Mother's Day began as a mother's wish for peace, before it became a mere symbol. But if we really wanted it, we could do it.

I hadn't really thought about Autumn drawing in all the senses. This makes it even better.
