Memorial Day is for remembering the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.~~~I like to think of this verse of America the Beautiful as appropriate for Memorial Day.~~~~~O Beautiful~For Heroes Proved~In Liberating Strife!! Who More Than Self Their Country Loved~~~And Mercy More Than Life!~~~~~America!~America! May God Thy Gold Refine~~~Till All Success Be Nobleness~~~And Every Gain Divine.

We're getting a lot of rain these days.~Maybe this poem will help us to get through the rainy season.~~~~~ It isn't raining for me~It's raining daffodils; ~~~In every dimpled drop I see~Wild flowers on the hills.~~~ The clouds of gray engulf the day~And overwhelm the town;~~~It isn't raining rain to me, it's raining roses down.~~~~~ It isn't raining rain to me,~But fields of clover bloom,~Where any buccaneering bee~Can find a bed and room.~~~ A health unto the happy,~A fig for him who frets!~It isn't rainging rain to me,~ It's raining violets. ```
