I had planned to post something in honor of Memorial Day, but this post by BJ Hoff says it better than I ever could. Please visit it and reflect on the message.
To my comrades from every conflict who didn't return to home and family, I salute you and give thanks for your sacrifice. May the time come when the world beats its swords into plowshares and peace reigns.
I wish to each of you, my faithful readers, a wonderful, restful, meaningful holiday weekend.
