I received the email below from a DML News reader. He makes some great points about how everyday Americans are forgot about. He just so happens to share my first name. What he writes is so, so very true. Take a look.
Seeing all the coverage of the funerals of John McCain and Aretha Franklin makes me wonder about our priorities. While these two deserve the honors they are getting, it makes you want to step back and think about the high level of respect too many people show for politicians, musicians, actors and sports stars etc and the lack of respect we show for the common man.
I am extremely grateful for all those who toil away unselfishly making our lives and our country safer and better. Please give a quiet thanks to all those you see in the obituary in your local paper. In some small or even large way, they made a difference. Never forget the common man!
