Memorial Day

It's coming up....Memorial Day. Do you have your BBQ menu planned out? Heading out for the Memorial Day sales shopping? Taking some time with friend's from the office? Somewhere else, they spend the day a little differently, and mark it in quite a solemn way.
Every year, Belgian children sing the US National Anthem, on the US Memorial Day weekend,  in honor of US veterans who served here. I wish more Americans realized the ongoing appreciation so many years after the war, in places like this. We won't be able to join the occasion here this year, although we know their singing will not go unnoticed for those who are able to attend. Check it out-
it's bittersweet.
