It's a shame that so many people just say: Happy Memorial Day and treat it like any holiday.

I'm sorry as it's never a "happy" Memorial Day to me.

Too many harsh memories for me.

And that is especially true for those who have seen first-hand what the rest of us should be solemnly remembering.

Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday in May to remember and honor the dead of all US wars.

Some people wear poppy flowers on Memorial Day. This comes from the famous poem, "In Flanders Fields," written by Canadian soldier Col. John McCrae during WW1.

"In Flanders Fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row..."
