Memorial Day

Memorial Day is really an odd holiday. While it is a day reserved for honoring those killed in action defending our nation from aggressors it is also a day that, for many, symbolizes the first day of summer. Schools are letting out, municipal pools open, everyone makes an effort to haul out the old grill and burn something dead. To a large degree I think many people overlook the actual purpose of the holiday.

Thank you for your sacrifice both yours and your family's. I think the best way for us to recognize the magnitude of sacrifice so many have made in defense of our country would be for us to GET THE HELL OUT OF IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN NOW! Both are costing us precious lives and both were wrong from the outset. The treasure of lives being wasted and resources being squandered is unforgivable.
