i mean why are vets only remembered/appreciated on memorial day? as if that day is the only day in the year their actions and sacrifices have any value. There's not a week where I don't take a moment out of my life to sit back and think on all that they have given and renew my deep respect and appreciation.
Is the wall only open one weekend a year?
Does all the pomp and circumstance only have to happen on that day when there's more cameras around?
Do the sacrifices not hold value the rest of the year?
Don't ALL politicians use every opportunity to further their own agenda and potential voter sway in the name of patriotism? Like say Mr. "Mission Accomplished" did?

It is the one day of the year for those who can come to the ceremony for the memory of our soldiers, dead or alive, are held. So maybe when you become prez one day you can ban cameras around for that ceremony so it does not irritate you. You see, these dates were made so that during the year some may have an excuse to meet together with friends of the same interests to honor their comrades. These people who came to memorials are not neighbours, those who fought in the war all did not come from the same province or states or county. They may even came from all over the world to gather there at the Memorial on that particular day...can you tell? No you can't maybe because you are detached on that particular weekend. You can do what you want on any particular weekend of your life, but to others going to the memorial together is a big thing--it may be the only day they may ever see and meet some of them again because some of these vets are getting old each day, each year....each moment. And some younger ones who go there too may not be there again that next year...for some reason or the other...Originally Posted by araczynski
Not really everyone...but since Mr Mission Accomplished do not have any real connections to the real American and our patriotism to this country, then he is the only one who has the agenda there to want to sway any potential voter in his fake show of patriotism. Do you think his secret service agents wants to be there and shoo those people away from the wall either? Think about that....Originally Posted by araczynski
