Subject: A letter of concern – Remembrances on Veteran’s Graves I didn’t realize we needed your approval first
Mr. Weinstein,I have read and heard the ‘news’ blurb in regards to your statements regarding American’s recognizing each and EVERY Military Vet funeral plot. I am older than you and perhaps that lends itself for greater wisdom, perhaps not. In a day and age in this nation where the media and the politicians have just about got us all ready to give up on the ideals of this great nation, there are still some actions citizens take to try to show their appreciation and love to each and every buried Veteran is still shown to be at the very fabric of our society. I am not anyone’s definition of a “great” Christian, Muslim, Sikhs, Jewish, Festivus human being and to that I will say TO HELL WITH YOUR DUMBASS TITLES, if a person of any other faith than my own wants to show their love and respect for my loved one’s sacrifice with a symbol of thanks at their graveside, I just wish I could be there to hug them and share the most basic sadness of all, in that, losing a Child, Brother, Father, Sister, Mother in action and thank them from the bottom of my heart for their action. You need to take a long hard look in the mirror tonight, look close, no even closer, God sees every line on your face and every thought in your mind, you will soon enough be face to face with the Great Creator and you can explain to him why you sought personal fame on the backs of people’s loved ones instead of embarrassing the act of kindness and love with open arms. Your sad display of disrespect can be rectified by you clarifying your statement, only God knows if you even have that in your heart and soul…..Grinch indeed.

Where does one start? You presume, you leap to conclusions, you cast insults without understanding what’sat issue and you try our patience as you betray your ignorance. We try to respond to all messages, but your
wrong-headed self-importance makes it difficult.
Based on the tone of your message it’s clear the source of your information is heavily biased, but my senseis that that’s like home to you.
You can bleat all you want and cast the actions of the organization blanketing veterans’ cemeteries with Christmasartifacts in as high-minded and beatific a light as you can conjure, but it doesn’t change the fact that it is presumptuousand inappropriate to place something representing a particular religious belief on the grave of one who doesn’t share
We have no problem with the wreaths being placed where they are wanted and welcome, but it is simply wrong toassume they are wanted everywhere. To presume they are is possibly laziness but just as possibly an intentional
statement on the part of people with an agenda. Either way it is wrong. To defend it, especially in the manner you’ve
chosen, is fatuous nonsense. Like your message, it reeks of a pretense of superiority. Neither bespeaks Christianity.
