Ana Rosa's First Memorial Day

By Brenda B. Covert
1     Ana Rosa Ruiz looked at her mama's calendar. It hung on the wall next to the kitchen door. The month of May displayed a photo of the U.S. flag. It also showed that the last Monday in May was Memorial Day.
 
2     "Mam�, is Memorial Day a holiday?" she asked softly.
 
3     Se�ora Ruiz looked up. She was rocking baby Diego to sleep. "S�," she said. "Yes, it is a holiday. It is a patriotic holiday."
 
4     "Is it just for Americans, or can Latinos celebrate it, too?" Ana Rosa asked.
 
5     Se�ora Ruiz stood up slowly. Diego stirred in her arms. Then he settled down. "I will tell you when I return," she said. She slipped out of the room. Diego would take his nap in his crib.
 
6     Ana Rosa waited. She could hear cars drive by the front of the small house. Their headlights shot beams of light along the curtains. The neighbor's dog barked. A small spider scurried along the wall. Pap� would be home soon. Mam� came out of the baby's room.
 
7     "Will we celebrate Memorial Day?" Ana Rosa asked.
 
8     "We will find a way to celebrate it," Se�ora Ruiz replied. She smoothed Ana Rosa's long, dark hair. Then she went into the kitchen. The yellow walls made the small room seem bright and cheerful.
 
9     Ana Rosa followed her, asking more questions. She wondered how people celebrated a patriotic holiday. She wondered what she could do.
