Memorial Day 2012

This year Memorial Day falls on the anniversary of the founding of the United States Border Patrol.

How appropriate then is it today for us to pause and reflect with sorrow, reverence and gratitude alike, while we listen to taps, played at the Memorial Ceremony for Border Patrol Agent Robert Rosas.

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.

-Moina Michael
