‘God Bless the USA’
I started my Memorial Day with a short drive from my house to town, and it was nice to see so many flags flying.
It was a quick reminder as to the importance of the holiday and immediately turned my thoughts to where they should have been – those who have lost their lives defending our great country and those who continue to fight for our freedoms.

No AC in car is no fun
I brag a lot about my car. And I do so justly. It’s a really good car. I have over 230,000 miles on my 2003 Toyota Matrix. And it runs like a top.
So far, all the car has ever needed has been a starter, an oil seal and a new blower motor for the air conditioning.

Memorial Day is tinged with sadness
Memorial Day is an occasion that is always tinged with sadness for me because of the way it has been absorbed into other things. Memorial Day is now the first weekend in the summer, bracketed by Labor Day at the end. For many it means no more than that, although car dealers and furniture stores seem to think it is a good time for sales.
Mississippians helped inspire national observance of Memorial Day
By U.S. Senator
Each year on Memorial Day, Mississippians gather to remember the patriots who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. The solemn ceremonies across our state are heartfelt displays of thanks and respect for the brave men and women of our Armed Forces. I was honored to take part in the Memorial Day events in a number of Mississippi’s small towns this year.
