Tomorrow we as a nation remember those who made the supreme sacrifice of their lives in the various branches of the military in service to their country. As we honor the dead we also need to remember the living veterans who served proudly in all parts of this world in a world that is becoming unstable to say the least. Our military is second to none on the world stage as far as experienced from my time in the service to still be connected through the Internet and social media platforms that we all connected to on a daily basis.
Memorial Day has become a platform to sell a car, a mattress set or even a chicken dinner. That is how our capitalist society works. There is no religious significance to the day. But we should all think about how we think about this particular holiday. Is it the start of the summer season of fun and relaxation away from the daily grind of life we all have to endure to survive. Or do we really take time to remember the fallen and their personal sacrifices for the American dream.
