Day to Remember

I was too young to understand it
Or remember it
My earliest memories of it are from stories
Recollections from others, years later
I grew up in the shadow of it
My childhood held the first few memorial days
Moments of silence in my elementary school classroom
The truth unfolded more as I advanced in history classes
As newspapers ran anticipated columns
But this year there was no front page story
No mention in school
Only the realization every time I wrote out today's date
When it happened, I was too young to understand it
Or remember it
But isn't it something to be remembered?
