The 1 and only's blog: "In Memory"

created on 03/25/2008  |  http://fubar.com/in-memory/b201357

I was on here last night in one of the lounges and someone came in and wished everyone a HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY.  Now I have no hard feelings for this person or what they said. But I actually started to notice, and I see alot of people saying it. Hell I have said it myself before. Another thing I have also noticed  some people are classifying this as a day to remember the troops. When in all actuallity it is a day to remember  everyone we have lost.  Not just the troops,but also police,fire and rescue, EMT's,and even civilians. Mothers,Fathers,Brothers,Sisters,etc. I guess the point to this is that I found it ironic that people say HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY on what in my opinion is the saddest day of the year.  With that being said, I appreciate all the thank you's and thoughts and prayers I have gotten from everybody. If it wasnt for you I couldnt do my job. You all make it worth it.

Those of you who know me know that I live in Kansas, and I am in the National Guard. So the whole thing about this war hits me a little personally (yes I did spend time in hell). Anyway, Today on the radio I heard a lady talking about what the student body of K-State is doing in honor of the 4,000 troops that have lost their lives for you and I. They are setting up a display of American flags. Each one will have the name, rank, and date the soldier died and be grouped together by the state they lived in. I will try to make a trip to Manhattan to take pictures so those of you that do not live here can see what these people have done for us. But i guess my point to this, is mostly for the people that bitch, complain, gripe, rant, rave or are just plain a$$holes. Remember the 4000 men and women who can't anymore and then try to find something to complain about. THIS IS THE GREATEST COUNTRY ON THE EARTH AND GOD BLESS IT!!!!!
