Memorial Day began as a holiday in 1868 to honor Civil War veterans who lost their lives in service. Perhaps this quote best captures that sensibility: “What I can do for my country, I am willing to do.” In my experience, we also honor the memory of family and friends who have passed away. This weekend, we visited two cemeteries acknowledging family members and veterans.
We are in the midst of transition. We still face uncertainty and stress. But we also have benefitted from flexibility and additional funding from state decision makers over the past two months. In addition to regular communication and health care guidance, our constituency has benefitted in several ways.
