MAUREEN SHEA, San Clemente
I attended San Clemente’s 2022 Memorial Day Observance. Keene Sherburne’s keynote was incredibly moving.
Todd Spitzer shared a few words. Tim Brown, Master of Ceremonies, presented a gift from the City of San Clemente. I found it curious Tim did not audibly mention what the “gift” was.
Then he gave a similar gift to Gene James, saying something to the effect of “Gene, you need an ammo box, too.”
An ammunition box was the City of San Clemente’s gift to Todd and Gene, the same week of the senseless shooting in Uvalde.
Stop and let that sink in.
