On Memorial Day, young veteran wants fellow citizens to think about cost of war

As we approached the weekend with Memorial Day coming up, I get the same feeling of resentment that I do every year. BBQ's and parties are the focus. Why not spend Memorial Day volunteering in some way to help veterans, helping them honor their friends and brothers who were lost? There are so many homeless veterans in Lawrence. Our family spends it that way every year. It's storming like crazy here right now. Most residents will stay inside and sulk because they can't have their big blowout. It turns my stomach.
