Thumbs up

Cecil Whig - - OPINION -

To Ce­cil County stand­ing up this week to re­mem­ber the true mean­ing of Me­mo­rial Day: hon­or­ing our fallen he­roes and their sacrifice to en­sure our free­doms. From the Susque­hanna to the Sas­safras, res­i­dents had no short­age of op­tions for cer­e­monies to at­tend, re­flect and honor the ser­vice­men and women who give so much to us and re­ceive too lit­tle. The Elk­ton Me­mo­rial Day Pa­rade was once again a shin­ing ex­am­ple of how to show re­spect while also cel­e­brat­ing the her­itage of our county and start of sum­mer. Mean­while, around the county, VFW and Amer­i­can Le­gion posts all put their unique twist on how to mark the day, from mark­ing graves to host­ing guest speak­ers, and play­ing “Taps” to fir­ing salutes. Ku­dos to all who honor our he­roes on what should be a day of re­mem­brance, and if you didn’t par­tic­i­pate this year, we en­cour­age you to spend a few of your va­ca­tion hours to do so next year. Our he­roes de­serve that much.
