Only 1 percent of the population serves in the military, but nearly all the population takes the day off school or work to celebrate Memorial Day -- with the exception, ironically, of the 1 percent.

That's a generalization -- but generally speaking, we can be an ungrateful and ungracious lot.

We often fail to even think of others, let alone express our gratitude. Spend at least part of this weekend thinking of those who have lost their lives in service to our nation, and let others know that you're grateful for their sacrifices.

In the past few years, we have had one thing reaffirmed to us every week. Despite our society's reluctance to show gratitude, people like to hear the words "thank you" -- even if we don't say it as often as we should.

Our Thankful Thursday edition has been well received by writers and readers.

At work, we even look forward to Wednesdays now because it's the day we put the Thursday pages together.

We like hearing how someone paid for another's meal or went out of their way to help a stranded motorist.

You're welcome. But this holiday is about honoring the dead that have served. Veteran's Day is for both the living and the dead.

No offense.

I sent old pix of my uncle from WW2 ,to my cousin down in Virginia .He sets up a huge display of all the men in my family that served ,every memorial day .

He was only missing my uncle.
He wanted in uniform images.
I had to tear the house apart to find them . There were only a couple,and all on leave in casual uniform .Nothing in dress.
He was so young too. Prob barely 20 .

I miss my uncle ....a lot.

Yup! I'll thank the soldiers who gave their lives to protect their own people and nations, not those sent to wars of aggression for the banksters.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. ~ John Stuart Mill

We had our Commemoration Day of Fallen Soldiers last weekend. I'm very grateful to all those people defending our country, because of them I'm not forced to speak Russian.

Have a great day everyone. cheers.gif

If a person went to war and lost their life doing what they thought was right then they're are to be honored.

If you don't like that then you can get ƒükkêd .
