Homage to my IPhone. I continue to be astonished at the tasks which can be accomplished on this small device. Today I was driving on highway 280 past the Golden Gate National Cemetery. I noticed that the large American flag was flying at half staff. I wonder who died? Using the phone to Google the Cemetery I found the phone number for their office. Calling this number I reached a pleasant voiced woman who told me that their policy was to fly the flag at half staff whenever there was a burial in the cemetery. Someone was being buried today and so in honor of this the flag was hung low. How wondrous, I thought, to discover this fact while zooming down the highway. Well, my husband was driving, and I was zooming as a passenger touching buttons on a tiny screen to learn something.
Memorial Day is coming up soon. As Americans we have a very deep debt of gratitude to those who have given their lives in the service of our country. My thoughts are with them today as I pass that cemetery.
