Happy? Memorial Day

Happy has always seemed to me to be the wrong word to adjoin to this holiday.
How about somber? A somber Memorial Day to you.

THIS is what I'll be thinking about today.

And HERE you can listen to a clip of Dennis O'Hare reading the litany of wars and some other excerpts from this play I would love to see.

Like you, happy seems inappropriate for a day we remember the war dead. It's not never a holiday for me even people tend to turn it into one.

I have been having the same exact thoughts.

I'd love to see that play, too. Let's go together!
