A Down Note on Memorial Day

Apparently, some people cannot let dead soldiers rest in peace.

Instead, they burn the American flags at their graves and replace some of them with hand-drawn swastika flags.

This is the kind of thing that makes me sick. Desecrating the graves of people who gave their lives so these very people could live in freedom, where they can make their stupid little protests and have the right to free speech. Many of these soldiers gave their lives fighting against that very swastika symbol.

It's sad, it's sick, and it's incredibly unfortunate that these things happen. However, I must give mega-kudos to the members of the American Legion who went back and replaced the flags. I hope the local authorities capture these ungrateful little punks and punish them accordingly.
