This parade is a shame and an embarassment. When I was a kid, EVERYONE in the neighborhood participated in the Memorial Day Parade. We marched up Emmons Avenue from Haring Street to Ocean Avenue, then back to the memorial. Afterwards, we would all go to a BBQ at the Ianiccoi’s home (Brown, right off of Emmons, where the Condo’s are now). It was great – It was fun. Nobody respects our past and present veterans anymore- Hey people – We ALL have what we do today because of the men and women who have faught for our country – I’M SPEAKING TO EVERYONE, THOSE BORN IN AMERICA, AND ALL THE IMMIGRANTS. BE RESPECTFUL, AND THANKFUL FOR ALL THAT YOU HAVE, AND SHOW UP TO THE PARADE!
