In my weekly Alan’s Monday Morning Memo®® yesterday, Memorial Day in the U.S., I simply posted a photo of the graves at the American Cemetery in Normandy, with the request that we pause and remember those who have served and protected us. (The photo will probably appear here on the blog shortly, since the Monday Morning Memo® is archived here.) Quite a few people wrote in support, some mentioning that people from other nations also were buried there.
This morning 9 people unsubscribed. That’s a small fraction of a percentage of total readership, and I respect people deciding to read and not read what they choose. I do it all the time.
But that photo and request seem like a strange reason to decide at that point to stop receiving the publication, which was apparently fine for them until then. Some things are beyond my understanding.
