Memorial Day

What does Memorial Day mean? I asked Cameron that question this morning, and he was quick to point out that he knew it was a day to recognize the men and women who’d died for our country. “For our freedom,” he added. So I asked him what it meant to be free. He thought for a moment and replied that being free meant you could do whatever you want. “It means I can be a professional golfer,” he noted. Then he added, “But I’m not really free yet. I have to wait until I’m 18, then I’m really free because you and dad can’t tell me what to do anymore.” I laughed. “Maybe,” I said, “but you know I’ll always try.”
