Those of you new to this blog haven’t read this before, but I always reserve a couple of dates for holidays and their true meaning. We, as Americans have reached the point in our decline as a nation where we fail to realize why it is we celebrate certain holidays.
Today is one of those days.
Memorial day is set aside to honor the men and women that have given the ultimate sacrifice so that you and I may enjoy the freedoms of living in what’s still the greatest country on earth. Though it is tougher and tougher to say that with all of the left-wing fake news, and “win at all cost” mentality that the left wants to employ. But there isn’t a country on earth that gives us the freedoms to call them on it, and to expound on why we are such a great country in the face of their negativism and hate-filled rhetoric.
Today is a day that we should all be visiting a national cemetery. It’s a day to think about those in our lives who have laid down theirs so we could enjoy ours. Our history is filled with millions of people who have done just that. Whether they threw themselves on a grenade in World War II, or took a bullet or a roadside bomb in Afghanistan or Iraq so that their platoon could be spared, we pause, think of their memory, and thank them for their service and their sacrifice.
It’s out of fashion in this day and age, with us fighting a war on terror that is entering it’s 19th year, to pooh-pooh the military. Nobody wants to be on the wrong side of that, but you’ll understand if you look at history and especially history in the last fifty years, that the conservatives in this country are the ones that have backed and honored the military without fail. It’s been the liberals that have wanted to use that money to further re-distribute the wealth. It’s been the liberals in our society that would take money away from soldiers in the fields, and like in California, want to give it to illegal aliens in the form of free health care (which should boil the blood of EVERY American!)
Before you fire up the grill today, before you crack open a beer and go to the lake or the pool this fine day, stop and give thanks, either aloud or silently for the millions of people that can no longer give thanks. Thank them for their sacrifice so that you can enjoy that beer, that hot dog or hamburger, and that sun tan you’re getting today. It doesn’t take long. But pray for their souls, and thank them for all they’ve given you.
They truly are and continue to be real American Heroes.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
