This recalls thought of how ashamed I am of a niece who lives in Ohio and who made a political ad endorsing a candidate who helped her sort out something about a bill sent to niece's boyfriend who was deployed to Afghanistan. When I saw that on You Tube I was disgusted, there blabs my niece on and on about "a love one deployed..." and praising this congressional candidate; further the political ad touts help about her husband..NOT. So many thoughts shot through my mind along with the initial disdain of "how could you...." but I know she is striving for her five minutes of fame....and to some it doesn't matter whose coat tails they ride.
I was thinking that we used to call this Decoration Day, the day we went to the cemeteries to decorate the graves in Pennsylvania. I have found that was right and not until sometime in the 1960"s was it changed to Memorial Day. Whatever else we do today, let us lift a prayer of remembrance and gratitude.
