As I reflect on this Memorial Day, I am ashamed of this country. We show respect for our nation’s war dead by having picnics and barbecues, and shopping for sales. We make a pretense of honoring the ultimate sacrifice soldiers made, yet millions of Americans refused to be inconvenienced by masking-up, practicing social distancing, and getting life-saving vaccinations in the cause of a greater good. We celebrate our military for defending our freedoms while Republican politicians and legislatures undertake an all-out assault on electoral voting, the bedrock of our democracy.
For this sorry state of affairs on Memorial Day, 2021, there’s one person in particular who deserves special thanks—Cadet Bone Spurs.
Let us not forget the damage this man has left in his wake.
