Memorial Day is this weekend. We are looking forward to a long weekend, as we remember those servicemen and women who sacrificed their lives for our freedom. Meanwhile, Portland hippies gather with a memorial service for 50,000 "murdered" bees.They say that bees are becoming an endangered species. If bees are removed from the food chain, then we are in trouble. 

According to the Mother Nature Network

While massive bee die-offs are troubling no matter where they take place, I suppose that the over 50,000 victims — including 25,000 bumblebees along with honeybees and ladybugs in the vicinity of Portland, Ore., a town that cares about all of Earth’s creatures; a town that is willing to hold memorial services for slain insects.
