Memorial Day is not for sale

New Ipswich celebrates Memorial Day on the weekend before the official holiday. Memorial Day is usually considered as the beginning of summer. As I write this the death count in Iraq is listed as 3422. I’m a Vietnam Vet, I’ve visited the wall and seen the 58,209 names carved there. I’m guessing that the TV ads and Sunday Paper inserts will be advertising “Memorial Day Sale” for all kinds of “stuff”. I only ask that anyone that reads this take a minute and consider what sacrifices have been made.

  1. Available on iTunes there are 2 podcasts worth listening to. Bill Moyers Journal has produced “D-Day Revisited” and “Maxine Hong Kingston”.
