Memorial Day

I really do get tired of all the memorial day propaganda. For one, it’s memorial “day”, not memorial weekend, or memorial week, or memorial month, although to hear some talk about it… Well they say “lest we forget”. Is there really ever a chance to forget? The media constantly reminds us that we are constantly at war, our government constantly reminds us of the honor of serving and dying for the country, every major public park space in every major city has monuments to the fallen, our public offices have the names of the fallen listed in bronze on large plaques listed according to which war they died in, even our national anthem is a war anthem. War, and more importantly, the glorification of war is so very prominent in our culture. There’s no chance in hell anyone could every forget. And I think that’s just as important to remember.
