Taking a break for the Memorial Day holiday

ghostlightThe blog will be dark for the Memorial Day holiday. Blogging on nuclear energy news will resume the following week.

For those of you who may have missed some of the top blog posts of the past five months, here are a few links.

 Don’t forget why we have Memorial Day

memorial dayPlease remember to honor current and former service men and  women.  Typically, in Washington, DC, the President lays a wreath at Arlington Memorial Cemetery to honor the dead from all wars in which Americans gave their lives for freedom.  It is the site of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and other war memorials.  Also on Memorial Day some people visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and find the names of the dead on the wall.  It is a holiday with a somber tone, but it is also worth remembering that the spirit of American freedom is an inspiration to people all over the world.

And just to break you out of the mood, here is a video of the U.S. Marine Band playing 'Amazing Grace" with bagpipes at Estes Park, Colorado. Somehow the sound of thunder in the background fits these times.
