Not Exactly Chuck Related
People in the US are celebrating Memorial Day (formally known as Decoration Day) this last Monday of May. Perhaps too many of us think of this national holiday as a celebration of the start of summer. Besides the fact that the astronomer in me goes “AAARRRRGGG!” when I hear that (“Summer? SUMMER??? The Sun is no where near it’s northern-most point in it’s path around the ecliptic!!!”), and besides the fact that I love the barbecues and the sound of children swimming in the community pool, that’s not what it’s about.
It’s also become a tradition to consider and be grateful for those who are veterans and for those who are serving right now, like our own Amyabn. If they were real, Casey would salute you, Sarah would consider you a partner and Chuck would be in awe. Something tells me that the real life actors who play those roles have very similar reactions.
Thank you, Amy.
Now I’m off to start my barbecue!
Update: Proving that he’s out to make me a truth-teller, Zac Levi tweeted this moments ago:
Thank you to all our service men and women. Thank you to the wounded. Thank you to the fallen. Thank you to all those that have served…
