Memorial Day

Memorial Day has always been a favorite holiday--a day off from the routine to reflect on those men and women who have given their lives so we can enjoy the freedom of ours.  Mr. Dub is excellent at helping us to appreciate our veterans in the best way that we can: a stop at the Old South Burying Ground in Bolton introduced our kids and a niece and nephew to some of our ancestors who fought and fell in the Revolutionary War.  When we were first married, we lived in Bolton.  We became members of the Historical Society there, and then got involved in an effort to memorialize soldiers from Bolton who fought in the Revolutionary War.   I believe it was the fall of 1991 when Dub helped install the markers.  He asked two full-time missionaries serving in the area to help as well.  Everyone was so happy that the war veterans would be officially and appropriately recognized.  I remember the last visit we made to this cemetery was an October weekend in 2006 just before Rooney's baptism.  I was glad we could go back today--it was a beautiful day to reflect and remember.
