Memorial Day

It’s difficult to say thank you to a dead person. Every year I wrestle with my thoughts and emotions on this day. I often feel shamed by the antics and greed of our elected politicians when I compare their behavior to the sacrifice of our fallen soldiers who fought for a better world. I have to ask, did they really die so that we could bicker and tell each other how fucking right we are? While we continuously and repeatedly vote for individuals that represent themselves more often than the principles that our valiant brothers and sisters in arms died for. Can we please stop shaming those that died for our freedoms?
