Today we remember those who died for our freedoms. Memorial Day. They took the risk. Some made the choice to; others were drafted and had no choice. All the freedoms we enjoy - speech, press, religion, property, etc. - result from those who defended our country.
In Seattle at Evergreen-Washelli Cemetery they are placing flags on 5,000 grave markers right now (7:00 AM) and have ceremonies at 1:30 and 2:00 PM.
