Spector of BrockenToday is the last Monday in May, or, Memorial Day. It’s the day that Americans say to those who have fallen while serving in the US armed forces: We remember you, we honor your memory, we thank you.

On Oahu, the Lantern Floating Hawaii event is a beautiful way to recognize those who sacrificed their lives in service.  Here on Maui, residents and visitors gather at a festival called Blossoms for the Brave to sew beautiful flower lei to place at Makawao Veterans Cemetery.

Have a safe, happy day, wherever you are!
