Memorial Day

 

I did this one last year and received a boatload of comments. So, I thought I would do it again. Enjoy your holiday weekend.

This weekend millions of Americans will gather in back yards, living rooms, town centers and cemeteries for a holiday.   A holiday designed to commemorate the men and women killed while serving their country. Some of us make a big deal of this, some don’t.  

When I see the tattoo-loving, tree-hugging, dirt-worshippers screaming at the drill-baby-drill, religious extremist-nut-jobs, I smile.

When I see the racist, greedy, tobacco-chewers screaming at the cross-dressing abortion lovers, I smile.

When I see the take-away-your-gun, tax-and-spend yellow-bellied-hybrid crowd screaming at the four-wheel-drive, shoot-em-all-and-let-God-sort-em-out group, I smile.  

I smile because I'm reminded of the freedom. There are many reasons you will get do as you please this weekend, and they are buried with American Flags.
