I do realize I’m using the term “Morning” fairly loosely here if you’re anywhere east of the Pacific time zone, but here it is.

Have a restful Memorial Day, and don’t forget what the day is about.  It’s not just barbeques and picnics.


In honor of Memorial Day, write a story or poem about a soldier.  This doesn’t mean it has to be about war.  It could be during peacetime, it could be before he/she “ships out” or after he/she comes back.  There are many possibilities.
