I hope that everyone is enjoying a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Something tells me that most of you may have fired up a grill at some point over these past three days…
“I have seen war. I have seen war on land and sea. I have seen blood running from the wounded. I have seen men coughing out their gassed lungs. I have seen the dead in the mud. I have seen cities destroyed. I have seen 200 limping, exhausted men come out of line—the survivors of a regiment of 1,000 that went forward 48 hours before. I have seen children starving. I have seen the agony of mothers and wives. I hate war.”
Those who have served, and I am not one of them, are the ones who understand those words in a personal way. So, today, we honor and thank everyone who protects us and allows us to live our lives with a sense of purpose and compassion.
