Good Saturday morning to one and all. This is just a friendly reminder (as if I had to remind all of Vineland) to all my friends to remember our brothers and sisters in arms, past and present. Though Memorial Day is Monday, we seem to have gotten in the habit of making a three-day holiday out of it. We also seem to feel the need to party our collective asses off at least TWO of those days, keeping the actual holiday to recuperate, before heading back to our jobs.
I'm not begrudging anyone from having a good ol' fashioned get-down, I just want to ask that we remember our folks in harm's way, and remember our Fallen Heroes who paid for our parties...with their very lives !!!
I just now put my Flag (yes, i capitalized it...so what ???) before the sun comes up here in Glen Rose, Texas. It will be clear, and HOT, and a grand day to be alive. I ain't your average patriotic type, who wear flag pins, ect., and who believes in God, guns and...what else ???
I am an American, and that is all I can be. I am a registered Democrat, and I am no more American than you, or you, or you way in the back...or you over in the corner. And that is the point I want to make. We are ALL Americans, whether we belive in God, or not. Whether we are Democrat, Republican, Independent, or no party at all (although I urge every American to vote, you don't even have to do that, if you chose not to...may all your babies be born naked, though!!!) .
Let us resolve, for one day, to put down our petty differences and be Americans !!! Those who fought, and fight still, and those who gave that last ounce of courage so that others might not have too, would expect no less from those they protect !!!
