Memorial Day is something I never know exactly what to do with. There is the honoring of those who have fought and died in battles, but there is also the thought that I don’t know where I would stand on WWII had I been alive then. The history books in high school make it sound like the entire country was completely unified in America’s entry into the war, and history shows that it was a good thing, too. But I wonder if that’s really ho it happened? Did no one protest? Or was that simply not something that happened back then?
