    Hope Obama or Biden don't forget that the veterans they celebrate on memorial day aren't in attendance.

    Back home in Montana Memorial Day was the day we planted our garden. It was the first time the soil was warm enough to do so.

    We had a short growing season there.

    Hope we can just let it be about honoring them, without politicizing their service.

    In Flanders Field, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae

    In Flanders Fields
    By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
    Canadian Army

    In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie
    In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields.

    This isn't about a soldier - but today, for me, it will do to represent.
