Today is Memorial Day, and we walked downtown with some friends to watch our village's annual parade, honoring our soldiers, past and present. The veterans lay wreaths at various monuments around town to remember our fallen heroes, some of which are quite young given the current war. It's a good reason to come together, to listen to the high school marching band, salute the volunteers of the local fire department, and wave to friends marching with the girl scouts. But for me, it gives a feeling of community and belonging, and that is what we want most of all for ourselves and our kids.
