Remembering Memorial Day

Memory


Since moving to the Valley,  Memorial Day has become my favorite holiday.  There's something about the way the people of Sharpsburg have been celebrating this day for over 140 years that is incredibly meaningful and moving as well as welcoming and fun.

This is a small town celebration with an enormous amount of warmth and heart, in a very significant place.

Here's a little video I put together showing the fifth graders of Sharpsburg Elementary School doing what they've been doing for 21 years now.

Enjoy the video and tomorrow come to Sharpsburg and enjoy the day.
I'll be waving from the Park Service truck, the truck with the cannon.
