Memorial Day remembrance in Siouxland community

23 May

Memorial Day will be here in another day and with it the beginning of summer. But Memorial Day is more than the start of summer vacation for school kids, it is remembering those dear to us, those who have served their country and for some, a time to reflect and honor those who gave all and continue to do so.

Salix, Iowa is a small community in Siouxland. Some houses, a defunct grain elevator, a quiet downtown area and a Catholic church. The church’s cemetery is small, but like all cemeteries, is decorated with American flags flying to remind all who pass that it is time to remember, and to take time to reflect.
