Memorial Day

Memorial Day

As has been said many times, this is NOT a happy holiday. It’s not really to sell appliances, tires, cars, linens, or anything else.

Grill out, if you can, and if you must, but keep in mind that you can do that because somebody paid the price of admission for you.

A very small percentage of Americans have worn the uniform, gone to war, and didn’t return…and the rest of us have to thank them every day because we live free. Raise one in tribute, please.

  1. Since 9/11 there has been an unfortunate (if well-meaning) tendency to merge memorial day with other similar holidays. It is not Armed Forces Day. It is not Veterans Day. It is not “cop day,” or “fire-fighter day,” or EMS day. It is not a ‘rah-rah’ pat each other (or ourselves) on the back day. It is the day we remember all of those who did not make it back.
