Memorial Day is already almost here! I have no celebratory plans, and instead look forward to a relaxing day of brunch, a long walk, and an enjoyable yet futile attempt to catch up on some reading. Amidst my rest and the celebrations I will remind myself of the solemnity of this holiday. First held just after the Civil War and known as Decoration Day, this is a day for remembrance and honoring those who have died in past wars.
