A Memorial Day Remembrance

A lot of people may consider Memorial Day as an excuse to have an extra day off from work to drink beer and barbecue with friends.

Though many would say that the reason people are able to do those things is because of the sacrafice of veterans.

Others may be against war as their own personal moral imperative. Though one fact remains: people have suffered and people have died in the service of America’s interests. People died.

A Danbury resident and a spectator at the Danbury Memorial Day Parade, Sean Scott and his son, Rudy, applauded as veterans groups marched down Main Street in Danbury. “They’ve supported our country and now we’re supporting them. I told my son that’s what today is about.”
