Tomorrow is Memorial Day. In our area we all go to town and sit through a 2 hour parade of Veterans, 4-h ers, ball teams, fire/police departments and little Miss and Mr. everything you can think of. I swear parents must make some of this up because there cannot be that many pageants in our little area and some of the names are stupid; Little Miss I didn't dirty my diaper last night, Little Mister most photogenic from the knees down. This parade is the longest running in US history and I'm proud it happens in our little economically depressed town. My favorite part has always been the Veterans. Every year there are less and less of those to honor and more and more in memory of signs on empty cars. That is one thing I have always stressed to my kids...these people deserve your respect because without them you wouldn't be allowed to sit here and watch a parade. I hope everyone out there seeks out a Veteran tomorrow and thanks them for what they have done for us. Everyone have a great holiday tomorrow and remember what this holiday is really all about.
