More than well said, Buckeye.....

We as a nation have become so self absorbed & detached from history that that's exactly what the result is....a day off.

I know it's hard for some to "feel" the sacrifices of people when they never knew those things as being part of daily life as they grew up but I'm with you....it's still no excuse.

To read that post "combatting over the top PCness" using some important dates like MLK Day, Veterans Day, etc. , just shows how far some people today are insulated from the point of Special Days.

Immature, stupid, pathetic, sad.....All appropriate & just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to descriptive words....
