Memorial Day

Today was Memorial Day here in the US. A day initially intended to honor those who died in the Civil War, and later to include all who died during military action in all wars.

So it's a holiday, a day off school. A few days ago, I had the following exchange with Angelina.

Me: "Angelina, you don't have school on Monday. It's Memorial Day."
A: "What's Memorial Day?"
Me: "It's the day we remember and honor all those people who died in wars."
A: "Why do we have wars if people die in them?"

For her lips to our leaders' ears.
