With All Due Respect or Simply Partying Without?

In honoring all the American war dead today, please don't greet someone with "happy" Memorial Day. It's demeaning. There is nothing happy about the loss of all the many military and civilian lives during all the times of war that involved citizens of the United States of America.

Give honor, respect, and thanks on this day to those who made the ultimate sacrifice. "Happy" is not a part of the equation.

Enjoy your holiday weekend BBQ and picnic events, but don't forget that our American war dead paid for our freedom to enjoy the celebrations.
