« Ignoring at our peril: Turkey | Main | Memorial Day, Athenian-style »




Good post.
I feel that memorial day should be about how we can be worthy of the sacrifice of those who have fallen in the past and will fall in the future on our behalf. Instead, it is now just a second Veteran's Day and both are more about nationalism than anything else (well, besides the primary meaning of three-day weekend).


Its interesting that although similar in genesis the value and meaning for ANZAC Day to Aussies and Kiwi's is so very different from other countries memorial days.
