Memorial Day started off on a bit of a disheartened note for me.
Due to a lack of community interest and support, Lansford did not hold a Memorial Day parade this year.
Instead, a service was held at Kennedy Park in front of a very small crowd.
I looked around at the sparse attendance and just shook my head as I thought about how sad it was that the people of Lansford couldn't even bother to come out to honor the fallen heroes of the town and of our country.
I wish I could say that I was surprised, but the truth is, I wasn't.
