Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day, when we honor the sacrifices of our soldiers.

Somewhere in my blog reading, I came across a suggestion I liked. In the Jewish tradition, we leave a cup of wine for the Prophet Elijah on Passover. Tonight I will set an empty place at my dinner table -- for the fallen, for the wounded, for the ones who can't be home because they have a job to do.

Maybe there won't be much conversation, but I couldn't ask for better company.
