Tomorrow is Patriot Day. It is unlikely I will be near a computer.



I wanted just to say: Never forget. Our country rose from the ashes. The markets opened. Never forget those who have bled so that it doesn't happen again. Honor the men and women of United flight 93, who took control of their destiny, and saved hundreds of lives at the cost of their own. Honor the soldiers, airmen, sailors and Marines who still fight and bleed on our behalf. Never forget that we are the greatest nation on earth, by celebrating our differences, and by coming together with the one fact that binds us all together - we are Americans.

Moraen - Thank you for your service, and for reminding us that we should all be proud of who we are, and grateful to who gave it to us.

I appreciate what you said and believe it also, but did they have to name it.... We all know what happened.. It reminds me of when Hallmark made up sweetest day because they need something else in the fall to boost their sales.

I think they named it so that future generations would find it easier to remember. Dec. 7th doesn't mean much to some

people.

I get your point.  However, I haven't seen to many Patriot Day cards in the greeting card aisle.

That's because the people you are to be remembering aren't here any longer to receive the cards.  I think it would be a good thing to have a day of rememberance of the important days in our countries history.  We celebrate Independance day, but it's more about fireworks, beer, and barbecue than celebrating the life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. 

 
Moraen is right about D-Day.  You ask the average High Schooler what happened on Dec 7, they won't have a clue.

I meant Dec. 7th, the day Pearl Harbor was bombed.

Morean - Have you read the book Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell ? I just finished it and it makes me furious that I had not heard anything about his story. The media talks for hours about Michael Jackson but very little about this guy and his fellow Navy Seals. Those guys are absolute warriors.

Ron - I read it when it first came out. A friend of mine is a Force Recon Marine who helped plan some of those missions.

Nobody knows what is going on over there and what has gone on in the past. Guys over there past and present are heroes, not f*cking Tom Brady or Michael Jordan. It makes me sick the things I take for granted each day.
