This is not the day for competitors to snipe at each other.
I think one reason Americans in the 1950’s and 1960’s found bipartisan compromise easy was because they had faced a common and deadly enemy. Kennedy and Nixon knew they had much in common. So did their partisan supporters.
Today we cannot reach agreements over small differences. It makes little sense to those of us who appreciate the many beliefs that unite Americans.
=Leave it to a Kennedy to turn a day intended to honor fallen soldiers into a post about the Kennedy’s=
Both served. One didn’t come back. This is their day. I suspect your a pro-war for others, you like the 1st century wars for fun and profit.
Remembering his relatives is exactly what every other one of us who have family members who served in long past wars or were lost in combat did yesterday. No matter what you think of his gubernatorial bid, criticizing Chris Kennedy for publicly recognizing exactly why Memorial Day is both a National holiday and a personal holiday for many of us is the lowest of class.
