More fat women than fat men go to water parks. Especially with the young, no one cares, which is kind of neat. Bikinis are just normal wear. If you aren't at BYU, a tankini is considered extremely modest. Last three times to waterparks in the past couple of years, I saw no speedos. That is an improvement. Everyone wears what we used to call surf jammers (long shorts that go to the knees for guys). Even girls are starting to wear them.
We observed Memorial Day at church Sunday. Bishop Benson talked about his grandfather, who was born in the late 1800s, like my grandfather Mylonas. He talked about how he would listen to stories about World War I and how his grandfather rode a horse (he was in the artillery). About how when his grandfather talked to others, the thing he remembered most was the fear, the death and the terror of war. How when his sons went off to war in World War II he cried and wished he could go for them to keep them from it.
There is so much we have to be grateful for, much more than waterparks and people who accept each other. Though it was neat to see people who didn't seem to care about race or fat or a lot of other things, just having fun together.
Bishop Benson's grandfather would have been pleased to see that.
