Thought for Today (5/25/2016)

This weekend is Memorial Day weekend in America.  Many view it as the beginning of the summer season and a weekend to camp and drink.  Today I saw a car driving around with a small billboard on top that said “Slumberland salutes Veterans with a mattress sale this weekend.”

My reaction to the billboard is not repeatable on here.  Memorial Day is the day to honor and pay homage to veterans who gave their lives in defense of this nation.  It is not a day to be remembered for camping and drunkenness!  Nor is it a day to commercialize for personal profit.

Sometimes my fellow Americans make me want to puke.
