"I have never been able to think of the day as one of mourning; I have never quite been able to feel that half-masted flags were appropriate on Memorial Day. I have rather felt that the flag should be at the peak, because those whose dying we commemorate rejoiced in seeing it where their valor placed it. We honor them in a joyous, thankful, triumphant commemoration of what they did". ~ Benjamin Harrison

I have one sentiment for our Warriors, both living and dead; cheers for the living, and toasts to the dead.

Have a happy and safe Memorial Day everyone!

As well as all the other fallen and injured soldiers... I would like to personally thank my Uncle Tommy Byrd (died in the 80's). He fought in WWII in Germany. He received an honorable discharge and a purple heart medal after being hit with a mortar shell, packing his entire leg in snow to stop the bleeding and save the leg. He could still walk with a cane, but had no calf muscle left, and most of his upper leg muscles as well.

Let us not forget during our activities today what the reason for this day off from work really is...

I went to a parade yesterday with my mom(shes gotten real big on it since my big bro is doing the Marine thing now) and I saw a few things that upset me. the disrespectful-ness some people had(the high school I attended played the nat'l anthem and a few select people didn't remove their hats) and that the colorguard flag twirler whatever you call them the choreographer had the two girls in the back salute(civillians shouldn't salute) and when I made mention of it to my mother the mother of one of the saluting girls starting freaking out on me.

On a cheerier note, thanks to all the men and women who fought gave life and/or health for my freedom.

Don't sweat the small stuff man, people like me and your brother are willing to bleed so that people like that have the right be be ignorant dumbasses wherever they please. Just ignore them and know that you are a better person than they will ever be.
