Here in the city it's overcast this morning, but through the day things will brighten up. Police cars are lining up along 4th Avenue in preparation for our annual parade. The 151st Brooklyn's Memorial Day Parade is the nation's oldest Memorial Day parade held in a large city. This year Lt. Gen. Robert L. Caslen Jr., the superintendent of the United States Military Academy at West Point, will lead the procession as grand marshal. Read more about the parade

It turned into a great Memorial Day celebration with veterans, marching bands, speeches, vintage cars, and just about anything else you can think of, yet something felt different to the hundreds of people who filled the park. There is always a sadness remembering those who had served in wars fought by American soldiers, but this energy was different. My neighbor Mike mentioned it also as we chattered with people we know and others passing by who smiled and said hello. It all seemed surreal.
