If this doesn’t make you feel ashamed, there is something wrong with you!

    It is not really fair to compare. I was at neither parade, however, if you had a parade next year for this years Cardinals, the crowd would be similiar. Just as the VE and VJ parades after WWII were well attended. We should honor our vetrans, no question about it. Isn’t a bit ingenuious to be jealous? My business supports Toys for Tots, we favor military vets in hiring, I am a grandson of a WWI vet, I have placed flags at JB for memorial Day, and understand the sacrifice they endure. Maybe the little smiles when we see a soldier, maybe its the Christmas card to a relative in the Army, maybe the quiet sanctity of JB National Cementary, or maybe just an understanding populace in support of the finest men and women in the world… Aren’t all national holidays a acknowledgement of our military and their families? Would there be a US without the Continental Army? Would there be a US without the men of WWI and WWII? Would there be a US in its current form without the thankless vets of Vietnam? Answer is absolutely not. So when we celebrate the 4th of July, Memorial Day, Vetrans day, even Thanksgiving, we celebrate those who have passed before us and preserved our country and life style.

    I was not at either of them. BB due to not caring to be there and the Vets from being sick. However nobody boasted about the Vets parade for days on end like they did for the Cards parade and many many fans were so proud of them that of course they would show up. Seems to me that people are forgetting who fights and dies for our freedoms in this country. That said the rest of my family from my father a WW2 vet to my grandson 8 months old were walking in the Parade.

    Our society, not only in St. Louis but throughout our country are more interested in sports and X Factor and have no clue about being held hostage by their own country. Parents, especially women with children seem more willing to give up freedom for peace of mind.

    Just give a little more time and watch more of our freedoms disintegrate and they will wake up from their slumber and will have lost their freedoms; but they will still have their idols. Then what will their idols do for them???
