“When will we all, awake up out this dream. Come here and smell the Folgers. The soldiers are human beings.” OUTKAST, “WAR”, Speakerboxx, 2003

RIGHTEOUSNESS. Memorial Day is a time to gather with family. It’s a time we take to travel to the beach, rest our weary minds and feet, or perhaps we pull out the grill, and that grillmaster of an uncle (if you’re like my folks) drives over from Alabama to bless you with his skills on the grill.  Ladies hit the mall for Memorial Day sales, as fellas prop up their feet to watch the NBA finals. Ahhh… the joys of an extra-long weekend.

The DDR: As we bask in the freedoms of travel, family, shopping, and eating let us not forget that the purpose of Memorial Day is to honor those servicemen and servicewomen who died so that we can maintain these “free” lifestyles.  Remember to be safe, and I will see you all Monday morning for the last installment of 30 Days of OUTKAST: The Education of Big Boi and Andre 3000.
