"This is not a day for joy. It is not a day for a "Sale." It is or should be a solemn day where we remember those who have or are at this very moment serving our country. Many have made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve the freedoms we continue to enjoy. May God bless them and may He comfort their families. May we all give thanks to them and always remember them on Veteran's Day, and every other day as well. Regardless of what you think of the merits of a particular war, these brave men and women chose to serve and protect and defend all of us. There are many more young servicemen and women buried elsewhere in this great country of ours, and overseas. There are also many still who are alive but living in poverty or lanquishing in our underfunded Veteran's Hospitals. Whatever your views on conflict, know that all who served in our Armed Forces deserve respect, honor, and a "thank you." "

Dead fools

Dead fools who followed General McArthur across the 38th Parallel but got beaten back and fallen dead.
Dead fools who went to Vietnam to kill and got themselves killed instead.
Dead warmongers who conquered Iraq but got killed in the quagmire.

Some guys are idiotic morons.
Dead souls lingering in foreign lands, their bones scattered around. They can't come home.
Foolish, because they had fantasies about their power but reality proved that they were wrong, dead wrong.

Memorial Day is the day for the fools to learn a hard lesson.

Qing Ming day...

No this is not like Memorial day here in the USA. Memorial day is a day to give thanks for veterans that have died serving thier country.

"Actually,Qing Ming is not just a holiday. It is also a day to celebrate the coming of spring. With the coming of spring, everything comes back alive again. Grass turns green, trees start to bud, and birds begin to sing. Qing Ming is also known as Grave Sweeping Day. People today have all kinds of activities on Qing Ming. Besides visiting their ancestors' graves, flying kites and picnicking are among popular outdoor activities."

PLA day

"The history of the PLA is officially traced to the Nanchang Uprising, when the army started fighting the Kuomintang (KMT) government. To commemorate the uprising, August lst is celebrated as PLA Day.


No this does not sound like Memorial Day either. Memorial Day here in the USA is when we honor the fallen hero抯 of the military. The brave men and women who have given their life for freedom and against oppression.

Reply: When is the "Chinese Memorial Day"?

I just eat an apple, why don't you?

If I ask you the same question "when is the "American Qing Ming"?", what would you answer me?

Hedan is correct, Qing Ming is the day for the Memoriation of fellen heros in China. It also contains the meaning of memorizing of passed ansesters and parents.
