Congress disrespected those who have fallen in the service of our country when it made Memorial Day (originally May 30) an excuse for a 3-day weekend, and it continues to disrespect the fallen as long as it ignores Senator Inouye's repeated pleas to restore the traditional date and dignity of Memorial Day.
If you care, you can vote to restore Memorial Day and sign a petition to support Senator Inouye. Help bring back the true meaning of Memorial day. Restore the traditional day of observance. Go to: usmemorialday.org/act.html. There are links near the bottom of the page where you can vote or sign the petition. Remember, "All gave some. Some gave all."
