Memorial Day 2011: Who Do You Remember?
There are some today who won’t remember the twenty-three brave warriors who were killed in Panama during the early morning hours of December 20, 1989 (and the days immediately following) while participating in the U.S. military operation “Just Cause“. Perhaps it is because their memories are fading, or has been overshadowed by other events that preceeded and followed that particular time in history.
But there are some today whose lives, both past and present, are indelibly linked to that fateful day in history. Who will never need occasion to remember those who fell… because there has never be an occasion when they have forgetten. I am one of them.
