What can be said about MD that hasn’t been said before? It means so much to so many people. To some it’s the unofficial start of summer, to others is a day to sell mattresses, many spend the day in reflection, dysfunctional family gatherings is idyllic to the masses. In all of this there’s a nationalistic component that can’t be overlooked, is it a bad thing?
It’s far too easy to become bitter; our government often breaks the moral contract it has with the men and women that serve in the armed forces; it puts people under the peril of war on false pretenses, it sends them to the maelstrom of death to protect corporate interests. . .from time to time, it does so to resolve a conflict for the greater good.
I suppose that the way a person feels about MD is the right way given their ethos; and that’s ok, spend the time as you wish–I already burned my quota of hot dogs for hungry rugrats, had a few cold ones but in the background din of revery, I give a nod to the fallen that paid the price for it all.
