Memorial-Day Weekend has come to be known, along with Labor-Day Weekend, as one of the two seasonal "bookends" for American students to set aside their books. It represents the traditional start of summer vacation.

Memorial Day (1999) also corresponded to the end date for my own mother's life, which, poignantly, was bracketed by the other war-related day of remembrance, commemorated the world over as Armistice Day. That was the day the First World War ended, and the day my Mom's life began.
