Today in the United States we celebrate Memorial Day, the day we remember American casualties of any military action. Though many worry that we lose sight of the meaning of holiday as it also seems to mark both a three day weekend and the beginning of summer, I think those people died so that we could enjoy both and would ask us to use the privilege well. That said, go to a parade if there is one, or if you haven't paid your dues lately, go for a walk in a veterans cemetery and think about the cost we've paid for the right to do what we want today.
