A Moment

Maybe you have the day off and you can ride to a cemetery in observance of Veterans Day. Bring a picnic or a hot drink with you. Sit. Be thankful. Take a moment to say a veteran's name.

I've always enjoyed cemeteries as peaceful places, green spaces, historical landmarks, but yesterday marked the first time I went to one with the purpose of looking for veterans' graves and spending a minute to contemplate their lives. I had the time, so I stopped at the Moran cemetery on my ride to the library. I'll stop at Woodlawn this afternoon with Maddie.
