Today is a day for remembering. Today is a day for being grateful.
I'm grateful that the Olympics, despite all my gripes about the money they've burnt, turned out to be a time of getting along. Maybe those peace prayers during the Torch Run helped.
It's also a day for remembering my dad, who died 20 years ago today. Tonight's fireworks display, documented by Jevon, is something my dad would have loved. Do you suppose he knew we'd be observing a 20th anniversary tonight and picked the day he went to spirit? And a night with a full moon in the sky for an even longer-enduring light show?
