There's a lot wrong in our nation, and it doesn't take a brain surgeon to see we're going in a bad direction. Nor is it some secret why this is happening. Nonetheless, we owe it to those we remember on this day to do something about it.
No civilization lasts forever, but nobody wants to be the ones labeled as those who let it die. That's not something I want to imagine when reflecting on the ones who came before and gave their all. So perhaps on reflecting, we'll commit to doing something to stop the spiral.
