Fredericksburg has one of the most moving Memorial Day celebrations.  The luminaria at Marye's Heights is so touching--walking in darkness among the lights on so many graves--the majority unidentified remains.

Fredericksburg has one of the most moving Memorial Day celebrations. The luminaria at Marye’s Heights is so touching–walking in darkness among the lights on so many graves–the majority unidentified remains.

It is hard to believe it is already Memorial Day weekend and that the beginning of summer is upon us!

Thinking today about veterans, past, present and future. Their work secures our great nation. I am always inspired and a bit in awe when I meet people who take on the responsibility of protecting society at large (whether in the military, police, fire department or other capacities)– a special and rare gift.

If you want to be reminded of the many sacrifices military service requires, I strongly recommend the new PBS series “Coming Back with Wes Moore,” that you can watch online for free. It profiles the challenges soldiers face reintegrating into society.

Wishing you a restive and meaningful weekend!
