BOSTON (CBS) — It’s a shame they had to cancel the annual Memorial Day parade in Beverly, but the veterans I saw on the news were philosophical about it.
They said a march of any length is difficult for the older vets, while many of the younger ones are first responders now who have to work on the holiday.
The folks in Beverly hope to revive the parade next year, and I wish them well.
But their story is a cue for us to think about other ways the meaning of the day can be honored.
