2020 Memorial Day ceremony cancelled

This year…

No thin crowds lining Glenview Road

No laughter from milling children

No salutes before the Glenview monument

Still a quiet respect for those who served

Still a memory of my uncle, a naval aviator, lost at sea

Still a fierce salute for those who served the nation

No long prayers

No solemn speeches

No crack of rifles before the war monument

Still a Memorial Day for those we lost

Still a quiet homage to those we lost

Still an ache on quiet Glenview Road

No crack of rifles

No thin hands waving small flags

Still a silent salute to those who served

Still on Glenview Road
