Author to deliver 2011 Memorial Day keynote

Author Brian T. Maurer will deliver the keynote address at this year’s Memorial Day exercises on Monday, May 30th, in the cemetery of Saint Bernard’s parish, Simsbury, Connecticut, at 9:00 AM.

Several years ago a woman at work placed a notebook in my hands — the diary of her brother in which he had recorded his daily thoughts while on duty in the early days of the conflict in Iraq.  It was a sobering read.  Like many Americans of that era, he served his country well.  When it comes to war, we are all writers, recorders of deep sentiments in our everyday lives.

Addendum:  A 12-minute video presentation of the 2011 Memorial Day keynote address may be accessed here.
