Disgusted!!!

Has society today has lost all concept of respect and gratitude. I was completely disgusted today as I made a deliver to a large grocery warehouse. Today being rememberance day you think people would have to common courtesy to take the moment at 11:00 to stop working or doing whatever they are doing and pause to remember the sacrifice that was made by so many men and women for our freedom. In this particular warehouse they had many radio's located all over the place, tuned to the same station. When the station requested a moment of silence only 3 out of the 25-30 people in my view actually stopped. I was even more disgusted when a manager walked over to one of those 3 employees and told him to get back to work, and stop standing around. Is this what our society has come to, that no longer can we take a 1 or 2 minute break from our day to reflect on, and be grateful for those who went through so much for us. You would think that a warehouse like that with more 200 employees in the building would make an announcement and ask the employees to pause. It us unthinkable that there is so litte respect in our society......
