Memorial Day

My Memorial Day was pretty good, I didn't have to go to school and I got to stay home and watch my DVR recording of the Indianapolis 500 because I wasn't home to watch it Sunday because I had decided to attend the graduation ceremony at Adrian College's Dawson Auditorium for our school's class of 2015.  Next year it will be us! Anyway, on Monday (Memorial Day) I just stayed home and did stuff on my IPad and computer and some school work. I pretty much just took Monday as a day off. I didn't really do much to celebrate, except watching the Indy 500 and Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday. The First Official Memorial Day May 30, 1868. We are actually celebrating our fallen and current military and their sacrifices they have made for our freedom.

National Month for ???

I think months are set up to celebrate unusual things, just because people like to have fun and celebrate some silly things once in a while.   I'm sure some people celebrate them, but I don't do all of them, I might do one every once in a while though.  Three other things I want to celebrate in May are: The school year is almost done, Two races on Memorial Day weekend, & Summer is almost here.  I would celebrate these because they are all coming up soon and I am looking forward to them all.  You can celebrate these all by relaxing and just doing your work and knowing a good time is coming soon/good weather.

Violence on TV

I think that there is way too much violence on TV these days.  However, unless you have cable, most of the shows offered are not violent (except on FOX, NBC, and ABC).  I think those types of shows should be on late at night, like at 1 in the morning.  I don't watch violent TV shows.  I watch shows like Star Trek, The Brady Bunch, etc.  Where has good TV gone?  I'm lucky to be able to get classic TV stations.  I also watch shows like Survivor, Dancing with the Stars, The Amazing Race, and The Voice which are good. Some TV shows have so much violence, because it creates suspense and excitement/a scare.  The show Grimm is too violent because people turn into monsters and attack other people.  The age I think it would be appropriate for someone to watch this show is when they are at least 18 years old and don't scare easily.

Cinco de Mayo—or the fifth of May—commemorates the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867).  This day is celebrated because Mexican people want to remember when they gained their independence.  Mexican people should celebrate this holiday because it is an important holiday for their country that they live in or have come from.  I think Cinco de Mayo maybe should become a national holiday here in the U.S. because there are so many Mexican or Hispanic people who live here.
