When people tell me “Happy Memorial Day,” I have to keep myself from reminding them that it’s not supposed to be a “happy” day, it’s supposed to be a day of remembrance and thanks, and MEMORIALS. But then I also remember this quote:
"It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived." – General George S. Patton, Jr.
Can’t say it better than that.
