Do you think people are losing sight of the purpose of Memorial Day?
Asked at Hastings, 1900 W. 23rd St. on May 28, 2007
“Absolutely. Over the generations, I think people are losing focus on what happened in the past. I think they’re losing respect for what previous generations fought and died for and losing respect for the U.S. itself.”
“Yes, I do. I think the younger generation is busier and more self-involved. I think the past just means more to the older generation.”
“I guess so. I think if people were truly focused on Memorial Day and what it means, they would be up in arms about Congress giving Bush a blank check to continue the war.”
“I think it’s too busy of a world for most people, but I know a lot of people who get the day off who don’t celebrate it as much as they should.”
