These Honored Dead We're on the verge of Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start of summer and a holiday often associated with picnics and cookouts. But Memorial Day has a much more profound purpose: It's a day to reflect, to mourn and to memorialize those brave men an women of the military who gave their lives defending America's Democratic ideals. We'll tell you how that is being done this year in Northeast Ohio and we'd love to hear your thoughts, Thursday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.
