'Happy' is not the right word

There were several ads in the May 26 edition of the Denton Record-Chronicle and even the Parade magazine wishing readers a “Happy” Memorial Day. How can anyone be so heartless to think Memorial Day should be “happy”?

Memorial Day is a day of reverence and remembrance of those brave men and women who fought and gave their lives to preserve our freedom. Please stop and think about what this day is about. And don’t be “happy” for it.

Paul McCoig,
