One of the long-lasting traditions stemming from the American Civil War, Memorial Day today symbolizes the start of summer: picnics, bbqs, parades...but none of us forget that while on Veterans Day, we say thank you to the vets who have fought and come home, Memorial Day does just that--memorializes. And in this time of suffering for soldiers who have passed away in all of our wars, including the one going on now--and the families who are left behind--we give our prayers and thoughts to all who keep us and have kept us a free nation.

I have included below a copy pictures of some of New England's Civil War memorials town squares or in cemeteries. No matter who is in the White House or which presidential "hopeful" is duking it out...we have much to be thankful for.

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY! Have fun and stay safe!
