    Wishing someone a "happy Memorial Day" is either ignorant or offensive

  • Why? Enjoying our freedoms while remembering those who sacrificed for our country is what it's all about.

  • robin in WRP Raising a 3rd generation WRPer

    It's like wishing your friend "happy anniversary of your mother's death". Memorial Day was intended to be day of reflection.
