    Maybe you should start with something smaller, like trying to organise a memorial site ...

    "Well, for one thing - it sure does seem to me that we really diminish the day by calling it the "National Day of Service"..."

    How so?

    I don't think it should be a holiday. I don't want people to spend the day drinking beer, grilling hamburgers, watching ball games and asking each other if anybody knows what they're celebrating. (See: Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Cinco de Mayo and any number of other such days we have).


    To me, by keeping it in the public domain, by speaking of homeland security etc., it justifies their (Britain and America ) course of action, that of invading Iraq and Afghanistan, and any other country, thus securing their demand for oil, by making it an annual holiday, tragic as it was, it will never be put to rest.
