Memorial Day matters, but not in the usual way. These brave warriors fought and even died for freedom. We are now, as an occupied country, losing that freedom. Nearly half of our fellow Americans, including a majority of ignorant young people, seem even to support it. So while we honor these brave soldiers of the past and recent wars, we must also learn and be inspired by their example: Because we are the generation that either loses America’s freedom, or fights to get it back.
