I appreciate your valuable engagement, Susan Rooks, as always. Many thanks for being the first to clap and comment. I agree that commercialism is embedded into all American holidays. But, as you indicated, that doesn’t mean it’s morally right. Moreover, while I haven’t served in the military (which I regret in hindsight), my late father served in the Army, 10th Mountain Division, special explosives unit. His military service and lessons learned significantly shaped his life for the better.
