The Daily Breeze: We Remember You

It’s almost the weekend. And it’s not just any weekend. It’s Memorial Day Weekend. For many of us, this is a chance to take an extra day to relax, refresh, BBQ and spend time with our loved ones. But for others, it’s a time to mourn, a time to grieve…a time to remember. 

Memorial Day is a day in which the country remembers those who lost their lives while serving said country. It’s hard to really put into words what that sacrifice means. Nothing we say, nothing I write, could ever even begin to make sense of the lives that have been lost throughout countless wars. Nothing I write could bring peace or understanding or closure. Words are powerful, but they’re not that powerful. So instead of waxing poetic about the thousands of men and women who gave their lives for America, I’m just going to say this: 

Thank you. We will always remember you. 

While we’re on the subject of remembering, recently, Evansville Elementary students spoke with community members who remembered the last 100 years of the town. We’re also remembering Tina Turner, who passed away on Wednesday. We’ve got a story about a charity bike event as well. 

You may not want to ride your bike tomorrow, though, as it’s supposed to rain again at some point in the afternoon. Temps will see a high of 76 degrees and a low of 49 degrees. Windspeeds will be between 2 and 12 mph, with breezy gusts of up to 23 mph.

Speaking of The Breeze…

Time Capsule Commemorates Evansville Birthday

We’d sing the town of Evansville “Happy Birthday” but we can’t sing. And also this is a newsletter, so that’s ridiculous. Plus, the town already got a rendition from a gym full of kiddos on May 15. Evansville Elementary celebrated the town’s 100th birthday, hearing stories from community members and placing items in a time capsule that might, eventually, be opened 100 years from now.

RIP, Tina Turner

It was announced on Wednesday that Tina Turner, beloved soul singer and The Queen of Rock and Roll, died at her home in Switzerland. She was 83 years old. Turner was an incredible musical artist, with an even more incredible personal story — one of resilience, courage and so much strength. She built her career in the 50s and rebuilt it in the 80s. The nation mourned when her death was announced. What’s love got to do with it? Everything.
