Memorial Day

I keep trying to think of something profound to say about Memorial Day. It's strange being overseas for such an American holiday - one complete with the American tradition of forgetting its purpose and just using it as an excuse to eat meat and drink beer. Josh and I will be celebrating with Chinese food and lemon cake later, with our friends Kelsey and Mack. Traditional!

As for the day itself, I just don't know what to say. My father and Josh's, and our grandfathers, and a lot of our friends have served in the military, many of those in war. We've been fortunate that, so far at least, they have all come home relatively unscathed, and for that I am grateful.
