  1. Every resident of Lakewood, both Jew and non Jew alike should show up as a sign of respect for our military service men and women.

  2. You wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for our veterens. Does anyone realize that? Would you give your life for your country?

  3. Monday is Memorial Day it is a federal holiday. Men and women died for this country. All public schools are closed. Why are the private schools not closed for this day? Public schools have to close for religious holidays. It is a shame to be lined up for the parade to start and have to be held up for the school buses.

  5. The same goes for July 4th..people forget if we didn’t fight for independence we would not be able to worship as we do today….
    That’s why there is so much division in this town, people should respect each other’s holiday’s….

  7. I think they should fill all the school buses with kids and drive along in the parade and the lcsw moble home should be in front of the buses

  8. This is NOT a religious holiday. It’s an AMERICAN holiday, thanking all the men/women who put/puts their lives in harms way for ALL of us, so you/me have the freedom that we do. EVERYONE should participate.
