A perfect day for the parade

It was a perfect day for the Memorial Day Parade... and the crowd of spectators seemed to me to be as big as any nice parade day. There were a lot of people who made it happen, but in particular, I thank my dad, Ernie Dipietro and Bob Ceccollini. They did a great job.

But most important, remember the reason why Memorial Day exists.

Excerpted from

In 1915, inspired by the poem In Flanders Fields Moina Michael replied with her own poem:

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.

It was a perfect parade. Thanks to all that made it happen. I'm sure all the veterans who were looking down were proud to see all the people who came out to honor them.
