Happy Memorial Day
When looking at the headstones at Arlington, I was stuck by the fact they do not tell you whether or not the people buried there were rich or poor. They make no distinction regarding their race or the circumstances resulting in their death. They simply stand, each of them, for one American. Each reminding us that we are descendants, whatever our differences, whatever our faith background, of a common creed – "unbeatable when united, one nation under God."
