I don't mean to offend. It's probably going to happen anyway.

Memorial Day

It is seen as an expression of great love to say "I would die for you." The soldiers we remember today did just that. They died for this country, for the freedoms we enjoy, and for you.

We owe a great debt to those who can never collect. To all my readers, take the time to do two things today. First off, take a few minutes to think about those who died for us. If you are of religious mind, say a prayer. If you can get to a military cemetery, go lay flowers on a grave, whether or not you know who occupies it.

Second, do something free. Write something inflammatory. Write to a congress-critter. Go play with gunny toys. Fly a flag. Whatever you do, just remember why you are able to.

The best respect we can pay to the dead is to use their gift.

Thank you, to all those who have served this country in our long history. Thank you to those who laid down their lives for mine. Thank you, the willing strong.
