Some friends are taking vacations this weekend, even in the Philippines, and there is nothing wrong with that. I wanted to go to Iloilo to check out the new S&R but the weather is too bad to get on a RoRo. There is always next weekend. There is heavy rain and it is not good for even a cookout at home today. Maybe tomorrow…I hope.
The Alert Colors of the Day for me are Red, White and Blue!
Let us please not forget those who gave the Ultimate Sacrifice for America. Nothing wrong with Hot Dogs, Hamburgers, Chicken, Pork Chops, Beer and Baseball. However, a Moment of Silence is in order for the Fallen Heroes, the real American Idols in my book.
Filipinos have served and fought with Americans in WWII, Korea and Vietnam. Some have paid the Ultimate Sacrifice as well. Let us please not forget them, either.
The American Military Cemetery in Manila has more than 17,000 graves, including those of US Allies.
There is also the Clark Veterans Cemetery, north of Manila. I am too far away from both cemeteries to place flowers but I would, if I could. Even though I cannot be there in person, I will never forget the Fallen Heroes. Not just once per year but very often, this comes to mind. Memorial Day.
Take care and God bless everyone.
I hope to see you one day, somewhere…all around Bacolod.
