I agree with Pedxing that this event should be neither Pro or Anti – War. This should be what it was meant to be: A Day of Rememberance and hiking. My idea that we should honor Veterans is kind of personal. My wife is an army brat and her family lost several members to WW II, Korea and Vietnam. I just thought it would be nice to honor those who do the actual fighting to protect the rights and liberties we have. We all have reasons for being a part of this event, whether it be to honor those lost on 9/11, honor veterans, spend time with your family, or just to enjoy the day. Changing the mission statement was just a suggestion. Now that I think of it, it should remain the same to keep the event as pure as possible.
