Best wishes for a peaceful Memorial Day

Here's wishing a peaceful Memorial Day to all, and especially to veterans and those close to those who served.

Memorial Day is a solemn day of remembrance for everyone who has died serving in the American armed forces.

To look at newspaper and other advertising, you'd think it was a celbration and cause for another sale.  I've even seen or heard of some twits wishing people a happy Memorial Day, so the masses have lost sight of what a memorial is, I guess.  I wish veterans, in particular, a peaceful Memorial Day because most of us have a better-than-average idea what this day is about.  I think of it as a day to honor those who fell in combat, but also these who served.  That, too, may be a distorted way of looking at this day of mourning.

    Justin Case you would like to know the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day.. Don't worry a lot of people don't know this and if they do they do not pay any attention... I would be grateful if you honored... my fellow brothers and sisters who did fall in combat in the military..
