Memorial Day. A day to remember those who died serving and protecting our country. I love the time off but I’m bothered by the thought of Memorial Day. Not really bothered, but perplexed why we should have a day for it. Same goes for Veterans’ Day, Black History Month, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, etc.
Sure, I celebrate all of them. But, why do we need a day for that? Black History Month. Why do we have that? Now, before you get on some “hey! you racist” kind
of things, hear me out. I think we should celebrate the history of all people, and not just in a month. And, if you’re going to give it a month, why February? Because it’s the shortest month? That’s stupid. Black, white, brown, purple, I don’t care care. Important people and accomplishments should be celebrated every day of the year, not just on certain days or certain months.
This brings me back to Memorial Day. Those who died, and continue to die, to let me write and say what I want in this blog, on my podcasts, vidcasts, on the streets, from the rooftops, thank you every day, not just today. Thank you veterans for what do you do to keep us safe. Thank you mothers, fathers, black people, white people, Asian people, Latinos and Latinas, Christians, Muslims, Hindi, Buddhists, gay, straight, bi, transgendered, questioning, Conservatives, Libertarians, Liberals and any other people that I may have left out, thank you all for making life what it is, how it is, who we are and worth being here. You’re all awesome, no matter what. Live life. Be happy.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
