Happy Memorial Day!

May 30th, 2011 Comments Off on Happy Memorial Day!

First of all, I would like to say Happy Memorial Day! At the same time I would like to challenge you to think about Memorial Day as to what holidays in the United States really mean. Do people understand what the holidays mean? Are you doing something special to celebrate the holiday or is it just a day off of work for you?

I am having trouble with the many holidays lately. I have come to try to celebrate the holidays as they should be remembering what the holidays were created for. Do we celebrate their original purpose?

Some holidays I have problems in dealing with as well. Memorial Day was created to celebrate what our armed forced have done for us. I have to say that I do support our troops and I do really feel for the family and friends of our fallen; but I do not support some of the conflicts that we are in, we are getting very selective and discount people willing to serve, and really when you look at the facts today every job is unsafe.

I thought about it a long time ago. I would rather be in the military serving doing something with computers or GPSr technology than working here in the US where I could die going to or from work in an accident, disgruntled employee, etc. At this time with the current economy everyone, including military, should be thrilled that they have a stable job.
