Ah, Memorial Day

Today I woke up and went on the computer and then realized that it was Memorial Day. I checked the time for the parade/ceremony. 10:30. It was 9:20 or so. I took a quick shower, brushed my teeth, and headed out the door. 4+ miles walking to the place. I got there at 10:40 and by then the parade was over but the ceremony was just about to start. I saw a photojournalist that first got me interested in covering events such as these and talked to him for a bit. I also bumped into Corey. The photojournalist took me home, which I greatly appreciate since I would have been very sore walking 4+ miles back (already walked 4+ miles there).

The guy above was incredibly rude. While the people at the podium were giving their speeches, he kept loudly interrupting them. He said “WE DON’T CARE” at one point. Yes, Idiot (his new nickname?), we do care. Eventually the police took him to the side and talked to him. Not sure what they said, I was too far away.
