Memorial Day holds some surprising roots, including racial ones, which we need to remember if we are to acknowledge the depth and complexity of the occasion. The day is, as Mark Bellinti writes, “a time for remembering the human loss in human wars, the silence of voices, the bending of hearts forever. . . ”
Let’s honor those who have served and died, yes, and why, and let us also remember those who were largely unseen and those who served in ways which may not often be held up.
