Our Richmond office is not far from Monument Avenue, where there are several civil war statues. These serve to honor those who served for the Confederacy, but they also have clues on each.
If a person is sitting on a horse that has both front legs in the air, that means that the person died in battle. If the horse has one front leg in the air, that tells us that the person died as a result of wounds that were received in battle. If the horse has all four legs on the ground, then it indicates that the person died of natural causes.
(I am not sure what this tells us)
I know that it will be a weekend of relaxation for some that includes many pools opening across America. Who doesn’t enjoy the pool?
Many will have an opportunity to catch up on some chores!
Memorial Day takes me back in my mind’s eye to the Memorial Day Parade In Muncy, Pennsylvania. They taught us to remember and to honor those who had died in military service by having us carry flowers down Main Street. A good lesson and a good memory!
I hope you have a great weekend and that you also have some down time to reflect during this Memorial Day.
