Memorial Day

Remember… All our Soldiers died in great pain so you can have your 20% off shit you don’t really need.  Enjoy it.

I’ve been thinking a lot on the Servicemen that I knew who have died… and Servicemen from Utah who have been recently killed.  And I’ve been thinking about my Grandfather, who served and survived WWII… one can imagine the stories that he had that he never told anyone… and I remember some that he did tell me.  Much somber thoughts today.

I hear people say “Happy Memorial Day!”   WTF is that?  I am not going to say that to anyone… I just say “Remember what the Day is about.” This is the day we honor and remember the best of us that sacrificed themselves on the alter of freedom.   This reminds me of the movie Saving Private Ryan, when Tom Hank’s character is mortally wounded, and his words to Private Ryan, “Earn this.” Our freedom is a gift that often times we don’t deserve… so strive to be worthy of it.
