Remembering Vets May 28, 2011

VFW "Buddy Poppy"

This weekend the blog departs briefly from the world of marketing and all the noise in the media about big Memorial Day sales. It’s time to take a moment and reflect on the many good people who have served our country and paid the ultimate price. 

I also believe it’s time to honor the veterans in our lives that are here amongst the living. The men and women who served and received little or no fanfare when they came home in decades past. Each day in the news we read about the GOP trying to gut human aid programs and our veterans in need are often slighted as the nation continues to struggle with misaligned priorities. The very least we can do is say thank you, shake a hand or buy a poppy from a VFW vet instead of hurriedly walking by.

This weekend it’s about putting aside political viewpoint (at least briefly) and being thankful for the freedoms we enjoy and acknowledge those we need to remember.

Have a safe and peaceful Memorial Day weekend my friends.
