Thunderstorms make noise but not a lot of rain

The rumbling and tumbling of the thunder and lightning today produced just enough rain to make everything wet but not too soggy. It was pretty scary, though.

Long bouts of thunder followed by rippling lightning and machine gun-like bursts of rain made venturing outside quite a frightening venture.

Some Memorial Day celebrations this year were either delayed or canceled because of the storms.

Maybe that is a good thing.

Maybe we have too much pomp and circumstance and not enough focus on the men and women who have lost their lives in wars.

I do not believe that war should ever be a way of forcing a solution, but I do believe that the people killed in these wars — often under cruel and violent circumstances — should be remembered.
