One Response to “Memorial Day a time to reflect”

    I  agree about making sure this holiday is about what it is supposed to be about, however as with any death there comes celebration. For me it is about the picnic and the memorial as well. I respect the men who have fallen and I think it is ok to celebrate that aspect of it all. I say have your picnics, but make sure you remember why you are having them. War is a sad thing. PEACE
