We drove past Vassar today which was a mistake. It’s Commencement today. You know what that means? Chaos!!
Lots of entitled twits in cars trying to back into traffic without looking because the nasty campus security wouldn’t let them drive into the handicapped parking area without a tag. There was an astronomical amount of profanity. Who knew you could get a degree in Cursing?! I should have a doctorate I’m telling you!
I rolled my eyes at their antics and commented that it was a pretty sad way to begin a day they were supposed to remember (and pay for!) for the rest of their lives.
It also made me a little sad that they hijacked Memorial Day.
I can pretty much guarantee few if any of the attendees will spare a thought for those who died for their freedom.
If you’ve followed me you probably know the esteem in which I hold those who serve and have served.
I think Memorial Day should, without exception be a day we celebrate. Gathering with friends and family and sharing food, fun and laughter. There is no better way to honor the fallen than by living the best life we can.
Enjoy today. Live every minute of it and make golden memories to treasure. Don’t forget to take a minute though and raise a glass to the fallen friends we never met.
There’s a song I love that never fails to make me cry.
Some stood through for the red, white and blue
And some had to fall
And if you ever think of me
Think of all your liberties and recall
Some Gave All
