Happy Memorial Day















We honor our military members and their families for their service and dedication to our nation. It’s important to remember that people serve and sacrifice so that we can all pursue our dreams.

In 1922, Carl Sandburg wrote the poem Washington Monument by Night to honor George Washington.  And this stands out for me:

The republic is a dream.

Nothing happens unless first a dream


The flag on our house in Greenwich Village once flew over the Capitol in Washington, D.C.
