It’s been 30 years since the New York Islanders won their last Stanley Cup, and frankly, they have been abysmal for most of the years between 1983 and now. During this labor-dispute-shortened National Hockey League season, the Islanders played respectably enough to earn their first playoff berth in seven years as they clinched the eighth and final spot in the Eastern Conference.
The Islanders drew the unenviable assignment of playing Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and the rest of the Pittsburgh Penguins, long an NHL powerhouse, in the first round. To their credit, the Isles showed that they weren’t merely happy to be there, as they battled hard to force the series to six games. Unfortunately for the Isles, they lost two overtime games at the Nassau Coliseum, including Saturday night’s finale.
Memorial Day is fast approaching, I hope it will not slip by with many forgetting the importance of this day. It is not just another day off to maybe shop for sales and enjoy back yard barbecuing. Memorial Day is a time to remember all those who gave their lives to protect the freedoms we enjoy today.
I find myself thinking what it means to be an American. The answer is crystal clear, and that is the pride to live in a county that allows us our personal freedom to express ourselves and speak our minds. These freedoms come with great personal sacrifice for those who leave family, friends and jobs to serve the greater good. I myself had served during the Vietnam era. Although I never saw combat, I had friends who did and who died serving their country.
So, please honor Memorial Day by honoring those who gave their lives for what we all hold most dear. You can do this by attending parades in your local communities and saluting those who served our country so well. I also ask the many who can to display the flag of our country from homes and businesses You can also call those veterans you know and tell them thanks for serving and keeping us free from tyranny.
