Memorial Day! So what exactly is a memorial? And what is being memorialized?
A memorial – “Something designed to preserve the memory of a person or event…”
Design: craft, construction, artifice, | a show.
To preserve: To sugar, salt, pickle, embalm, set under glass (like a fragile document)
Ah! That’s it! Perhaps this memorial day we are embalming our constitution. After all, it has already lost all signs of life,
