The Normandy American Cemetery - Normandy, France
But Memorial Day is not a 'happy' holiday.
Memorial Day is a time to reflect on the people who sacrificed their lives so you can live the life you do in this country.
Especially this year, the 6th since the War in Iraq began, when over 4000 of our service people have died, not to protect this nation or our way of life but in an illegal, unjustified provocation. 4000 dead for nothing. 4000 lives wasted.
I'll have a 'happy' Memorial Day when Bush, Cheney, and their minions are in a dock in The Hague.
