Dad's thoughts about Memorial Day 2020

Phoenix Cemetery, Gaines Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, May 25, 2010

Thought this would be an appropriate post for this morning.
And I also want to help keep it from becoming a Lost Corner of the Internet.

Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Memorial Day 2020 occurs on Monday, May 25.

Thousands in WWI and WWII

Many more in Korea

58,000 in Vietnam

Iran, Afghanistan and many other places.

And yet, their generations are still
here to fight the war against the virus
and the stupidity of our elected officials.

When was that last time you drank
with the Governor at a bar or
ran into a Senator at a grocery store.

They are not everyday people.
They think they are Shepherds leading
the sheep.

We are not the sheep.

It’s time for the flock to run on its own.

Be thankful when you see someone
you knew before the lock down.
They are a survivor just like you.

Together we will endure!
