Unbelievable: Arlington Cemetery Missing 30,000 Christmas Wreaths

Ah #BlackFriday that sensational day where not 12 hours after giving thanks, people will do anything to get more stuff and save some cash. Don’t believe me? Take a look at the video below. (Believe me there’s plenty more where this one came from)

“The Patriot’s blood is the seed of freedom’s tree.” – Thomas Campbell

Need I say more? Sure, this isn’t norm, but let’s contrast this with the other piece of breaking news that hit the interwebz today. At Arlington National Cemetary, over 30,000 graves will not have Christmas wreaths placed on them this year. Why? Because the organization Wreathes Across America has failed to receive enough donations to honor the men and women that have died for our right to live in a free society.  Now, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with getting a good deal. In fact, I intend to use this blog to share some of my favorite deals and maybe even some exclusive sales.


All I’m saying is this: wouldn’t it be a beautiful thing if, on the day when everyone is focused on what they can get, Americans could come together and donate a couple of those dollars they saved to honor a soldier who gave their all for us?

Seriously, it’s only $15 and it would show the world that our priorities are in the right place. So who’s with me?
