Pink Floyd - The Hero's Return
___________________________________________
Jesus Jesus what's it all about
Trying to clout these little ingrates into shape
When I was their age all the lights went out
There was no time to whine and mope about

And even now part of me flies over
Dresden at angels one five
Though they'll never fathom it behind my
Sarcasm desperate memories lie

Sweetheart sweetheart are you fast asleep, good
'cos that's the only time that I can really speak to you
And there is something that I've locked away
A memory that is too painful
To withstand the light of day

When we came back from the war
The banners and flags hung on everyone's door
We danced and we sang in the street and
The church bells rang

But burning in my heart
The memory smoulders on
Of the gunners dying words on the intercom

Memorial Day is a National Holiday in the USA to commemorate those soldiers who have made the ultimate sacrifice, their lives, fighting for their homeland during wars. Some essential (WWII) some not necessary (Iraq). So I honor those brave men and women for their righteousness to do their duty and serve when the country called on them to do so regardless of their political views.

I disagree because we are all one tribe called humans. On the other hand it's Nationalism which will be the downfall of all on the planet.
Thanks kindly, Nils I salute you!

"Tribalism implies the possession of a strong cultural or ethnic identity that separates one member of a group from the members of another group. Based on strong relations of proximity and kinship, members of a tribe tend to possess a strong feeling of identity. Objectively, for a customary tribal society to form their needs to be ongoing customary organization, enquiry and exchange. However, intense feelings of common identity can lead people to feel tribally connected."[10]

Maybe one day, in the moment tribalism is nationalism, imo. :)

A five time draft dodging coward. Five times his country asked him to serve and five times he ran to his daddy's money to help him "buy" his way out of serving. He's nothing more than a coward and a traitor to our country.
