Honoring our Heroes

Memorial Day 2020
by Barbara Novack, Writer-in-Residence at Molloy College

What do we remember
on this day?
The best part of us
lost in the moment
honored forever.

This year,
when all has been changed,
we hear an echo
we add names.

There have before
been times of trial
times of fear and uncertainty.
This day
we remember those
who helped us through.
And now
we remember, too
those
who help us through.
