Memorial Day

I was in a bad mood on Saturday, and I think that what I said about Memorial Day might have come across as harsher than I intended.

If you have the opportunity, and the means, to spend time with people you love and celebrate life before it comes to an end, then you should do so, and God bless your revelry and your fellowship.

I just think that Memorial Day should be about remembering what's important, like appreciating your loved ones--living and dead--and the people who gave their lives for their country. And if you can remember that while having picnics or whatever, then good for you. But you should also remember that it's not necessarily a happy occasion for everyone.
