      Strangely enough the policies of Obama and his administration seem to be creating a higher level of patriotism than I have seen in a very long time. I hope it’s not just my imagination! I know several young soldiers who have been in Iran and they say that the people are so grateful to them but we will never hear that from msm. Our country is losing steam but is still great, no matter what Obama says, and Americans are still the most generous and kindest in the world!

      Thank you to those that have given the ultimate sacrifice for the United States.

      On this day I am always reminded of my name sake buried at Arlington National Cemetary. God bless you Uncle Red, you are forever in my thoughts,

      Today, I watched my Dad who’s 80 years old proudly march down a boulevard in his Towns Memorial Day Parade ~ beside him… a 90 year old WWII Veteran walked beside him ~ the younger Veterans were marching in front of them …

      I could never be more proud to be a daughter of an AMERICAN VETERAN and I shook hands with every Veteran in that Parade, looked them in their eyes and said Thank you. One man, prior to the parade was so moved, that I cared enough to personally Thank him, removed a necklace bearing his parachute batallion and placed it around my neck… I cried till I sobbed in front him as we both embraced one another and cried together. I will NEVER forget our Veterans and their sacrifice for our freedom.

      God Bless all of our Veterans, living and fallen ~ their families may we be mindful to pray for those who serve and protect & those fighting now for our freedoms.

      Thank you.

      Freedom isn’t free and we must remember those who paid the ultimate price so that we can live in the greatest Country in the World.

      Thanks to all the Veterans & their families.

      We love you and will always remember

      God Bless Our Fallen Heroes!! If not for those who paid the ultimate price for our freedoms, this country might resemble China, Cuba, Russia, etc. This country was built on “FREEDOMS” and we must continue to fight for those freedoms. We must also take our country back from the “evil empire”!! God bless America!!

      Ditto #6…Well said. The Price of our Freedom is never really free.

      Thank you to All of the Men in Women in our Armed Forces & Coast Gaurd for helping to protect us, keep us save and preserve peace and tranquility for our allies abroad.

      God Bless all the Vets & their Families

      Your mixing of partisan perspective, perhaps even on the loony side from some perspectives, almost entirely wipes out the good message you had going about this special day, where all Americans can agree on remembering those who fought for our country.

      What I don’t get is why you would shame yourself in mixing such a singular American message with a partisan one. Too bad; not a very good way to honor all those who fought and died in our history (no matter who they followed or what their politics were).

    10. NGBoston on June 1st, 2010 6:29 pm

      #9—-Good point you make. You must, however, understand & then accept are millions & millions who view our current Administration as evil. Perhaps that adjective is a bit too strong. Our President & his Administration are dangerous )at a minimum.) Evil—not so much.

      The point of the thread however was about Americans remembering our Veterans. I agree there really wasn’t a need for a partisan comment.

    11. NGBoston on June 1st, 2010 6:30 pm

      #10- Correction….then accept *there* are

    12. Susan on June 1st, 2010 7:44 pm

      #9 – Blog Talk, I didn’t shame myself for what I wrote, so WTF are you talking about? You could thank me too for serving THE GREATEST COUNTRY ON EARTH proudly during the Cold War Era, but Memorial Day is not about Veterans who are fortunate and blessed enough to be alive. Memorial Day is a day to remember those who gave their lives for this GREAT NATION, who’ve also afforded us all “freedom of speech”, amongst many other freedoms we tend to take for granted daily. Unless you served, can it!! You or no one else will ever take my freedom of speech away, NOT EVEN THE EVIL EMPIRE!!

      #12 – Susan,

      Well how do you feel having “mixed such a singular American message with a partisan one”?

      Do you think partisanship is a part of Memorial Day?

      Should someone only remember those who are on the same side that they are?

      Do the fallen only fight for some Americans?

      Perhaps shame was too strong; but it was what came to mind when I read your post. In a calmer moment I would not use that term again.

      BTW, until this last post, no one knew of your service; how could we ever have been able to think about thanking you?

      Your comment that I need to “can it” is ridiculous. I have and will never speak against anyones right to free speech; you and I included. However, free of speech is not automatically the same as respectful or responsible speech.
      SM: Actually Blogtalk I am telling you to cool it, especially in this thread. I have too many relatives and friends that have died for this country’s freedoms. You will be respectful on this site. This is not a public forum, it is a private one and you will act accordingly when you are in some one else’s home.

    14. BlogTalk on June 3rd, 2010 11:58 pm

      SM – To be clear, I just didn’t think it was proper to include a partisan message within a post on this thread in connection with American sacrifices. Memorial Day is nonpartisan, and belongs to all Americans.

      I’m confused about the partisan comment Susan made; are you saying that comment is respectful of those who died for our country? Common sense tells me that people who disagree with her perspective have died for America. What does her comment tell their families about sacrifice?

      I certainly hope asking these questions is not considered disrespectful; that is not any part of my intent. For the record, I/m sorry to say that I’m really not sure what part of post #13 is disrespectful (if that was what you referred to).
