NO STORY ON MEMORIAL DAY THIS YEAR!

Original post made by VETERAN, San Ramon, on May 28, 2015

Rather surprised this past weekend and again after the Monday Memorial Day holiday... especially since I have always felt we live in the most patriotic community anywhere in the country!

A total lack of coverage - announcement or photos of the remembrance program held in the town of Danville at Oak Hill Park on Monday. Freedom is not Free! The media business should know this better than most, although maybe patriotism does not sell newspapers or increase viewership!

"All gave some, and some gave all!" Memorial Day is not just about weekend sales & discounts, BBQs, or a long weekend off!

It is about - all those who "died" for the freedom we all so greatly enjoy today in America! It would seem the media might mention the freedom of the press or something on Memorial Day. Reminding us to take an hour out of our weekend and take our family to a local program.
