In the News: It is beyond dutiful, to remember the United States holiday of Memorial Day. It is a time to remember those that perished in the service of their country. It has become a broader remembrance of our loved ones who have passed on. I believe that is a good thing, as long as somewhere in the recesses of the mind there is a squaring up and paying of respect to those that died fighting wars; those that served and women that waited.
I grew up in a neighborhood that joined together on such holidays as Memorial Day to display flags and seemingly act reverential. People new people who had perished in WWII or Korea. My parents never went on and on about my dad’s service. I won’t either. He served. He saw. He internalized. He suffered. He and my mom paid a price. It should be memorialized for more than one day in your mind and heart. Bless my parents.
No politicizing, patronizing, flag waving, flag burning, moralizing, pontificating….seriously bow your head and say a prayer for those that lost their lives in some hell hole. The least you can do today. I guess that is sermonizing.
