Memorial Day 2011

Memorial Day. Onetime "Decoration Day", is the time when our nation remembers her war dead. (Note, please, this is not "thank a veteran day" or such either - we have our day on November 11th!).

I do not get upset at the mattress sales, barbeques and "unofficial start to summer" that seems to compete with the original purpose of the day - However, I do think one should first remember why we have this day, maybe do a little something for it (go to an observance, put a flag on a military grave, etc) then go forth and enjoy the liberties gained and preserved for you by those who laid down their lives in time of war.

I am sure many of those that gave their all would probably have wished the same.
