En memorium

Happy Memorial Day!  Hope everyone here in the good ol' USA has been enjoying the long weekend.  Since there is also Veterans Day, I tend to think of this day as being in honor of all those who have served our country, both military and civilian.  People who have spent their entire careers in government or the armed forces, those who have died in office, those who lost their lives in battle, etc.  I also tend to view this as the day to mark tragedies that shaped the country's consciousness, like the San Francisco earthquake or 9/11.  So, it should be a thoughtful day that is also tempered with joy and thankgiving.  I played mini-golf with my dad this afternoon, and it was nice to spend time with him in a free country (for the most part, assuming our phones haven't been wiretapped).  I also think about moogie277, who works for FEMA, and sergeantbond in the Air Force, wishing them the best and thanking all those like them who work hard every day to try to make our nation a better place.  All those who have come before and those who serve now should know they are appreciated! :-)

In totally unrelated news, I have a U-shaped pattern in my journal calendar.  How delightful.

Current Mood: thoughtful thoughtful
Current Music: Linkin Park - "Reanimation" album

You know, maybe you shouldn't tell people I work for FEMA. Some people tend to think that it's the four letter F-word of government agencies. ;-)

*LOL* I would think that as well, if it weren't for the fact that you work there. Since you do, I figure it can't all be bad. :-)

It's not all bad. But, it is a running joke in my office.
