MEMORIAL DAY 2015: Can We Write Our Own Story?

By Joe Scarry

In past years, I’ve reminded people that Memorial Day is a day, most of all, to renew our commitment to NOT waging war.

In 2012, in particular, I was thinking about this in the wake of the NATO Summit in Chicago:“THIS Memorial Day, Honor the Fallen: STOP Drone Killing!”

Instead of waiting for Memorial Day to come, and silently lamenting the useless loss of life and the fact that the world isn’t turning toward peace, shouldn’t we be publicly putting forward the headline we want to see on Memorial Day?

Here’s mine:

The Memorial Day 2015 we want:
Obama, Putin in Direct Talks to End Nukes; “A Share Obligation to Prevent Disaster”
OBAMA: “We’ve heard the rest of the world loud and clear. It’s time for us to disarm.”
PUTIN: “We’ve heard the rest of the world loud and clear. It’s time for us to disarm.”
