Memorial Day Parade in Cambridge

memorialday1Don’t miss the Memorial Day Parade on Monday.  Cambridge City Hall notes that the Cambridge Veterans’ Organization will be holding their parade on Monday.  For the younger ones among us who aren’t clear what Memorial Day is all about.  The holiday is to commemorate those in the Armed Forces who have given their lives in service to us here in the United States.

My husbands grandfather who was a Navy veteran died later in life on the weekend of Memorial Day so the holiday is tied up with thoughts of him.  My children are young enough not to truly understand death or the ultimate sacrafice that these brave men and women and their families make.

So as we enjoy the extra day off let’s not forget what it is all about.  I am hoping to make the parade and the observance at the Cambridge Cemetary.  We are lucky to live in a city steeped with such history as Cambridge, Massachusetts.
