Andy Rooney on Memorial Day

Today is Monday May 30, 2016. I usually post my blog Kimo's world blog every Monday, however this Monday there will be no Kimo's world in it's usual format in memory and honor of all Americans who lost their lives to protect our freedoms...

My favorite journalist, columnist and my mentor Andy Rooney speaks from the grave on the true meaning of Memorial day.

Andy Rooney explains the true meaning of Memorial Day, honoring those who did not give their lives, but had them taken.

Andy is the epitome of American freedoms with his witty wisdom, knowledge and genius. This is why I chose Mr. Rooney to to represent Memorial day.

Please take 2 minutes to watch and listen to what Andy had to say about this day.
