Memorial Day:

Two links that really sum up Memorial Day.

Scott Ott:

We Left Our Youth at the Beach
A World War II veteran, closer now to 90 years than 80, told me he once had a dream that he died and was reunited with his fellow soldiers who had perished between Normandy and the Ardennes.

They were all as he remembered them, young men. He, however, in the dream appeared as he does today -- well advanced in years. They didn't know him at first, he being now decades their senior. It disturbed him to see himself that way, and to be seen by them an old man.

Battle Hymn of the Republic
Yes, the children of Dixie singing the Battle Hymn of the Republic.
