2. A day for remembrance of the dead is not a cheerful occasion, even if it
Edited on Mon May-27-13 11:06 PM by No Elephants
is part of a three-day weekend and has become synonymous with barbecue.

Way too mamy who did not get to live out a life, way too much grief for their survivors, to wish a viewing audience a "happy" memorial day.

It is a day to observe, commemorate, reflect. And for far too many, a day to weep and mourn a loved one who was lost much too young.

A Bostonian of 92 today was crying, mourning his fellow soldiers.
