Memorial day/Dover

There are pictures circulating on Facebook this holiday such as this:

As you begin your holiday weekend please take a moment and remember what Memorial Day is all about. Please pray for the families who have lost loved ones in service to our country.It expresses the inner torment of many during this holiday and many other holidays. I am glad it came along for it has been in my thoughts all weekend.

We went to the Delaware beaches this weekend. Coming back we stopped at IHop in Dover, Delaware. It struck me at the table and I almost lost it in tears.

This very town is where the departed return. Those lost in battle and in the line of duty. I imagened my friends who lost a son coming here for ceremony and many others. I wondered if some in the restaurant where part of the honor guard that with great discipline, ceremony and solemn care handle the remains of the fallen.

I felt honored to be so close to the base and so close to where many have notched just one point on the time line of grief they will never forget.
