I was trying to explain what Memorial Day is about do my kids, and while I don't think they get it that much (ages 7, 9 and 10), my oldest still managed to respond well with:

"It's a good thing we have soldiers to keep us safe"

Yes, yes it is!

Thank you to all those who have kept us safe and free. Those who gave all or a lot. Those who are doing so now and those who will do so when their time comes.
And thank you to all those who take the time to remember and honor them.

I appreciate your intent, but to wish someone "Happy" greetings in regard to Memorial Day is bad form. My dad told me, when I was much younger how the Old-Timers, including him, find that very extremely offensive and insulting.

Happy is rude to say, when referring to the dead who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Next year, please try to be more thoughtful. Try something more appropriate, like, "Remember Memorial Day," to show the appropriate respect that is due. Even "Have a safe Memorial Day," would be better.

Thank you for your attention.
God Bless the USA!

Wisdom and courage to our brave men and women in service and confusion and defeat to all our enemies.

Never thought of like that but you have a valid point sir. I will keep it in mind next year.
