Memorial Day Picnic

 

In the cool May wind and rain a lot of picnics were not happening.

We are supposed to reflect on Memorial Day.

Instead we often picnic.

It isn’t that we shouldn’t.

Freedom is worth celebrating

just like it was worth fighting for.

Reflecting isn’t much to ask.

But most of us don’t really,

unless we maybe knew or

were related to some one

who didn’t come home.

The price was too high

paid in Mays long forgotten

paid in the wind and the rain

paid in full.
