"Welcome to Memorial Day, 2005. This is a time set aside to remember those who gave their all for their country. Celebrate that. If you're fortunate enough to live in the nation that represents the last best hope for freedom then do those things this weekend which bring you joy. Cook out. Travel. Be with friends and family. Eat, drink and be merry. If you have a moment, a toast to those who've made it possible would be fine. You honor their sacrifice by living well."
Update: Some of the commenters at Mudvillegazette seem to think the above is a little frivolous, but the author is in the Military and I thought it a generous and gracious Memorial Day 'remembrance' on his part.
