I'm going to talk about what bothers me about memorial day.
Yes there are some ceremonies. Yes we talk about remembering the fallen.
We have "Memorial Day Sales"!?
Who came up with the idea of turning memorial day into a shopping for sales day? We have become a country of consumers. All that matters is "buy more" "GDP" "the economy". This is so WRONG!!!!
We should all boycot memorial day sales.
Memorial day should be for remembrance. It should be the one day a year that we stop what we normally do and think about those who sacrificed their lives so that we could be free.
