Memorial Day Weekend

Written by Captain Mary on Tuesday, May 27, 2008

What a great weekend with friends and family. My friend Shelah offered $5 to anyone of the kids playing in the pool who could answer the question "What Holiday are we Celebrating?" and "What is it about?" The first question all answered correctly our surprise came when not one of the dozen children playing could give us an answer. What it came down to was that the kids got a day off from school and not one of them actually knew why we were celebrating. It made me wonder what they are teaching them in school. I know that most of what my grandchildren learned was taught at home, the reason for all the homework they get is for us to teach them, because they are going to school for six hours a day and not coming home with nothing to began their future as our leaders. Let me say I can't blame teachers, they have far too many students and their hands are so tied with all the political testing that the ones lost are our children. Well Happy Memorial Day for those who know what it's all about. Embrace your freedom, for our children don't yet know what it is all about.

    Actually, it was Mon who offered the cash. LOL!
    I could have knocked mine in the head though. We covered all of that weeks ago. Buttheads.
