Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service. It’s also another American Holiday that GOOGLE tries to ignore. This year only a small flag and a yellow ribbon show up on their home page and you have to mouse over it to see “Memorial Day 2013” and it doesn’t even link to anything so you can learn more about this day.
It’s shouldn’t be this way and I hope that they understand that we don’t appreciate that decision.
THE FREEDOM that Google enjoys here is the MOST freedom they will ever enjoy and they should honor the memory of the people who offered up their lives for the freedom they now have.
Celebrating Memorial Day is not a sin.
Celebrating Memorial Day is not a celebration of war…nobody is in favor of WAR.
When wars start it is hoped that they will end quickly and decisively so that no more lives will be lost.
The people who make that happen and who have paid the ultimate price are the ones we Americans remember today.
Larry Page and Sergey Brin should remember that “don’t be evil” is not just WHAT you do…but ALSO what you DON’T DO. Walking by a starving child and doing nothing is evil, even though you are not the one who caused the child to starve.
Ignoring the sacrifice of the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces who gave them the country that in no small part contributed to their success IS doing evil.
God Bless America and the people who have served and who continue to serve to protect our freedom.
Indifference should not be the new normal for our society. Our civilization can not stand on indifference.
