Remember, let’s be polite; let’s be respectful, but most of all, let’s be outspoken.

As we are persevering in trying times, we must remember what we have and how we obtained it. As we sit home in hopes of an economic reopening, we must reflect upon the riches that we have acquired, the people we hold dear, and the freedom we enjoy.

Every year on Memorial day, we look upon the nation we see today. We see a nation that has come so far in so little time. We see a nation that is built upon the freedoms of the Constitution and the everlasting will of the people.

No matter the color of your skin, the details of your religion, or the scope of your ideology, we take this day to remember the brave men and women who laid their lives down for the prosperity of this union.

More than ever, we must recognize the numerous privileges we enjoy every day. While the boredom and limitations set by the quarantine may seem like torture, it is nothing compared to the suffering millions of soldiers endured for this nation.

Let it be known that the preservation of our republic and founding principles has only been possible through the efforts of our military.

As we reopen our shops and attend our schools, we must remember that the reason our country is capable of economic prosperity and social fruition is because of the ultimate sacrifice of our brothers and sisters in arms.

“Words are even more feeble on this Memorial Day, for the sight before us is that of a strong and good nation that stands in silence and remembers those who were loved and who, in return, loved their countrymen enough to die for them.”

President Ronald Reagan

Remember, let’s be polite; let’s be respectful, but most of all, let’s be outspoken.


The founders of the Outspoken Oppa are also the founders of the La Cañada Charity. Every year on August 4th, we set up organized charities in Memorial park. We collect donations consisting of food, clothes, and toys. We believe in a world where every child has the opportunity to be lifted from poverty. Our mission is to provide the absolute necessities to the rising generation. We do that, by organizing charities annually across the city. We believe anyone has the capacity to revolutionize technology, pioneer science, and lead the nation. In 2018, we were able to collect 150 donations. In the 2019 charity, we obtained 1,200 donations meaning we had eight times more donations than the proceeding year. Our staff tripled over a year and we were able to reach a larger demographic. Join us in 2020 to help the homeless. Hope to see you then.
