Franklin TV: Memorial Day

by Pete Fasciano, Executive Director, Franklin●TV and wfpr●fm
This weekend the weather might be variable, but it still serves as a gateway to a socially glorious Summer – a return to Summer’s past – to gatherings with family, friends and neighbors. – to pre-covid community. Let Old Glory wave on high in slow motion, celebrating our newfound freedom to socialize once again.
This year we can remember not only our valiant soldiers who gave their lives on the front lines of freedom, but also our valiant front-line responders who died fighting the virus with courage and great compassion for others – for the sick and dying.

What can we do to honor them? Even though things are improving, keep a mask at the ready for situations where appropriate, where compassionate, where you can demonstrate kindness to others who may be immunocompromised. Wear it when and where socially warranted – for your family, for friends, for total strangers.

Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day. Consider wearing your mask – as a declaration and decoration – as a blue badge of courage – and caring.

And –  as always –
Thank you for listening to wfpr●fm. 
And, thank you for watching.
