photo taken on May 30, 2011 of bagpiper at Wasatch Memorial Lawn
Today was Memorial Day.
Despite the rain, thousands came to the cemetary to pay tribute to loved ones, including this bagpiper dressed in his kilt barely visible under his raincoat. My father-in-law passed away a couple of years ago and a bagpiper came to his gravesite and played the song, Amazing Grace. There was some synchronicity today because right when we got to the cemetary this bagpiper was playing Amazing Grace about 50 feet away from her father's grave. As soon as he finished, he left. Timing is everything.
I will write a little more about a couple of things I have learned about Memorial Day and the significance of this day.
