Les Patterson????????s Monday Morning Boost: Let us remember both

A small flag fluttering in the morning breeze marks the place of young man????????s final resting place. An inscription tells a piece of his story ???????? Purple Heart, Marine, Iraq, KIA.

A few streets away a quiet house marks the home of an old man at rest. He was once like the young man, but his story is a not so easy to tell. He????????s in his 80????????s now, part of the Greatest Generation that made it home.

The young man was remembered as a hero; his mamma remembered a little boy playing army. The old man was also welcomed home as a hero; he cringed at the word.

The young man is remembered and honored for the life he gave; the old man remembers and honors the life others gave.

Both paid a price.

On this Memorial Day, let us remember both.

Have a great Monday. Thanks for letting me share!
