Memorial Day Holiday

Memorial Day

Each Memorial Day we honor the brave men and women who have fallen while serving in the United States Armed Forces. In observance of the holiday, the library will remain open regular hours Friday and Saturday, but will be closed this coming Monday, May 25. The library will reopen for business Tuesday, May 26 at 8:00 am.

However you might be celebrating, we wish you a safe Memorial Day, and extend gratitude to those who have given their lives in service to their country.

Those Whom the Fallen Loved: We Honor You

About once a week I drive by the Houston National Cemetery on Veteran’s Memorial Drive. My heart sinks as my eyes follow the deep perspective of identical gravestones. I ponder the meaning of that silent rhythm of stones. Next Monday we will remember those who gave their lives in the military service of this country; the service at the Houston National Cemetery will begin at 9:30 a.m.

But here in the library it’s the survivors of those who died whom we see. They are the people who valiantly grieved and then got up and embraced the values for which their loved ones died and carry them on, deep into life and into society. As we approach Memorial Day, we at the library honor those whom the fallen loved. It is our privilege to serve you.

 

What is your SuperPower?
