  • Forgetting Easter a big lesson in remembrance

    By Chuck Griffin • For Roane Newspapers

    Several years ago, back when I could easily call myself a young adult, I awoke after sleeping in one Sunday morning and went about my usual routine.

    I ate a late breakfast, watched television on the couch and wandered through the day carrying out some other activities that must have been fairly mindless, as I cannot remember them now.

    It was only later in the day, prompted by an item on the evening news, that I discovered something.

    It was Easter Sunday.
