A good day to take a minute to remember what people have sacrificed and continue to sacrifice for their countries.

You know, I'm sorry to say that I didn't even remember what day this was until I saw this post. I knew some people of my father's generation who were there (or doing their part somewhere else); and I have a very special friend whose husband is in Iraq right now.

Shame on me.

I have to say I was a little disappointed with GOOGLE today, the graphic on their home page was used to mark the 1599 birthday of artist Diego Velázquez , I thought it was a perfect opportunity to make sure the sacrifices of so many are remebered.

Google didn't do a darn thing for Memorial Day either. Totally ignored it!
(Remember, they're California liberals)

But as for today...
To The Greatest Generation... Thank You for all your sacrafices.

God Bless the Greatest Generation!
God Bless America!

No, the cable networks would rather report that Obama farted or McCain picked his nose and stream it as "breaking news".

God forbid they acknowledge the sacrifices made for us.

December 7th also came and went without any coverage (that I know of) by the various media. I was surprised.

Many thanks to the men and women of our armed forces for their committment and sacrifice.
