Remembering

I was listening to the radio in the car the other day. They were talking about Memorial Day...but all they talked about was how it marked the beginning of summer and all the wonderful sales going on all weekend......what the heck?!?! When did Memorial Day turn into a celebration of the beginning of summer? When did people choose to forget about our fallen troops?? We're in the middle of a war, and still, people forget the true meaning of this day. What has to happen to make people remember??? It's such a small thing. All we need to do is remember them...remember them and honor them...not because they died, but because of who they were and what they did for all of us.

Here's to all of our fallen troops...all heroes...may they rest in peace knowing that they will not be forgotten. Some of us will always remember...always...

It's disgusting how our society is sometimes. People have no sense of belonging any more.

A little silent reflection never hurt anyone. I so agree.

It's because of corporate America. It's the same thing they do with Christmas. Some of us have forgot the true meaning.
