Some heroes’ flames of life are spent in a burst of glory, and some heroes’ lives are flames burned slowly through the years in quiet service. This Memorial Day, I honor in my heart my parents, aunts and uncles, grandparents, siblings, cousins, numerous friends of my parents, my generations, my children and their generation, my neighbors and community members. I see hard work, honest soul searching, loving health care and honesty, the rising up to meet emergencies and disasters, faithfulness to duties, laughter, giving, and helping. These people are heroes in my eyes and heart and life.
