Hi there. Today is still May 30. It isn’t a Tuesday or Thursday. It was the day when Memorial Day was observed. Now this day is.observed during the last Monday in May. My Grandmother was pissed off to.say the least, when this day was moved to the last Monday of the month. She refused to leave her house on Monday. I tend to agree with her. Memorial Day brings mixed feelings.
I agree that we honor the people who sacrificed their lives. I don’t like that we have to set aside one day on a day the government makes a three day weekend to draft summed. That sounds so cynical. It is true
Eight members of my family served in the NAVY. Those who served during war are forever scarred for coming back when their brothers didn’t . My dad served in The Air Force. He was a rebel and his brothers never let him forget.
During the Memorial weekend, my dad and I watched movies until they ran out. My dad died on May 2#th and was buried twice on May 29th. That is for another story.
I had a point in all of this, but my confidence and my phone betrayed me.
I guess even though those who served can’t hear or read, I want to say than you.
Do you have any Memorial Day stories to share?
