Kindness overflowed on Memorial Day

Aspen Times writer

Dear Editor:Reflecting back on the events of the past weeks, I am amazed at the displays of patriotism, of caring, of giving, and of the involvement of our community.I gave up on the very lengthy list of the people and organizations involved with the Wall and Memorial Day and decided to make this a thank you to all, so I wouldn’t forget, overlook, or leave anyone unnoticed. How do I thank all of the people involved in these events? I simply express my gratitude and appreciation to each and every one of you. Many thanks to the organizations, visitors, guests, clubs, motels, hotels, churches, businesses, city and county entities, law enforcement, support staff, the parks and rec departments, and to the countless volunteers who gave selflessly of themselves, of their time, and of their splendid efforts to make the Wall and Memorial Day a fitting tribute to our fallen soldiers.Your kindness, concern and devotion exemplifies the very best this great country has to offer, just as the fallen exemplified the very best. What a pleasure and an honor to have had the opportunity to be a part of these heartfelt ceremonies. I will remember them for a long time. For me the D-Day observances were a most fitting closing ceremony.Dan GliddenAspen
