Sharing moments in time…

Memorial Day Migraine

Its been a long time since I’ve posted and even longer since I’ve posted any political commentary…. but today deserves a comment.  This special day of remembrance, respect and honor for the men and women who have served our country and paid the ultimate price has been defiled by our current white house occupant.  The man who is supposed to be our Commander in Chief issued this message this morning:

“Happy Memorial Day! Those who died for our great country would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today. Best economy in decades, lowest unemployment numbers for Blacks and Hispanics EVER (& women in 18years), rebuilding our Military and so much more. Nice!”

Tone deaf does not even begin to describe his tweet.  The mind-numbing lack of respect and dignity and the total focus on self congratulation are amazing – even for this man.  For someone with his history of evading the service and sacrifice that we honor today – silence and restraint would have been a much better choice.

    Amen. Not sure where “we” are going from here. So much lost, so much more to lose. Wake up! Stand up!

    Scott, thank you for the post. It is hard to describe the feeling that his words invoke in me, but you have come mighty close. Please keep your articulate observations coming.
