A brief pause from the 101 Days of Boston College Football (and believe me, there are plenty more to come) to wish all American readers a happy Memorial Day. Many Boston College Eagles have put on the uniform of one of our service branches, and some gave their lives defending the flag. It is those brave souls and all others we honor today. To learn more about Boston College’s veterans, see veteransmemorial.bc.edu.
For many, this is the first day of summer (though if we’re going to go by temperature patterns this year, summer began sometime in March). There are many fun distractions today, but be mindful of the meaning of the day.
