Happy Memorial Day from Boston

For Memorial Day*, there are flags on Boston Common. Twenty thousand flags. It's an awe-inspiring sight.

*If you're not American, or want to brush up on your history, read about Memorial Day here. I like that they chose the date "because it was not the anniversary of a battle."

The video clip shows the breadth. (Sound isn't important: just kids playing nearby and other people looking at the exhibit.) Fluttering in the breeze...

A good reminder that it's more than a three-day weekend. Enjoy the cookout, enjoy the day off, but remember why.
