As we head out to enjoy the holiday, let’s remember it’s Memorial Day, a day when we should remember and honor the men and women who have given their lives in service to our nation. There are national cemeteries across the nation holding memorial services to honor these men and women.
Thousands of men and women have been killed in war zones just in the past 14-plus years. Most served without much fanfare and with only their loved ones and fellow service members remembering and mourning their loss.
This is considered the start of summer, for vacations and warm weather activities. As Americans we enjoy the freedom to travel about the country, or just locally in most cases, enjoying the recreational possibilities available to us. Those is how it should be, but before we go to the beach, hike in the mountains and throw some food on the grill, let’s take a moment to remember the fallen heroes for whom this day is meant to honor.
We are not the typical news website – nor do we wish to be. We will be offering more than news and blogs, but an opportunity for fiction writers, poets, comedians and musicians to showcase their talent and skills. Much like when the Beatles formed Apple Corps Ltd, they opened the door to all kinds of inspiring talent that never really got a shot. From that came the likes of James Taylor and others. We hope by providing a similar approach we can shine the light on some tremendous undiscovered talent and at the same time offer some familiar voices who live in Los Angeles and beyond.
