How exactly do those who are for it celebrate it?
Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?
Usually, an independance day or such event, as it is in even in the case of the USA, is to celebrate the end of war, not the war itself and everything within it. It's just about the fact that it ended and there was a resolution to it.
For instance. The 100 years anniversary of ww1 was this year and people didn't remember it because we wanted to celebrate war but to serve as a reminder to not do another such war.
