Be it Memorial Day or any other day, let us never forget the sacrifices of those who served our nation and sometimes paid the ultimate price. Hope n' Change humbly thanks these men and women and their families.
Let today be a day of awareness, gratitude, and a reminder that each of us carries a debt to be worthy of what others have given us.
We're breaking policy by discussing politics on Memorial Day, but we feel compelled to comment on Barack Obama's reprehensible actions in Hiroshima over Memorial Day Weekend.
We can forgive him for laying a wreath for Hiroshima's dead, but can not forgive his characterization of America's use of the atomic bomb as immoral. Specifically, he said he desires: "a future in which Hiroshima and Nagasaki are known not as the dawn of atomic warfare but as the start of our own moral awakening."
The start, Barry? Really? We weren't behaving morally before you came along to lecture us?
People are debating whether or not the president's words constituted an "apology," but they're missing the more significant point of Obama's anti-nuclear speech. He called out our nation as having been in the wrong morally, but did not - could not - apologize because he would have to identify himself as representing the United States to do so. And in this case, as in so many others, he was presenting himself as an outsider - a citizen of the world - speaking disdainfully to our country rather than for our country.
The bombing of Hiroshima was a terrible necessity and most experts agree that in the end it saved countless lives - including Japanese lives.
For Barack Hussein Obama to label our nation and our warriors immoral on this weekend of somber remembrance is beyond the pale. He can't possibly leave office soon enough.
