This weekend we celebrate Memorial Day, that national holiday on which we remember and honor all our loved ones who are no longer with us. To many it is "Decoration Day" when pilgrimages are made to cemeteries to place flowers on the graves of the departed. There is a sense in which the graves should be forgotten. A person who lives only in the past may grow melancholy and morbid. No one should bury the zest for living and the hopes for the future in some sentimental grave.
