  • Narrative Essay On Memorial Day

    As the nation observes Memorial Day this weekend, we should take a few minutes to reflect on the great number of American military cemeteries that span the far reaches of the planet, where boundless ranks of white stones stand silently at attention with few visitors to ever pay their respects. There were never any veterans’ reunions for them – not one. Well, at least not on this side of eternity’s threadlike veil. In what seems like a blink of the eyes, it was last summer that I was…
