Memorial Day 2008: Remember…

Please take a moment today and remember…

Memorial Day is upon us.  For many Americans, it is a day of no school and no work, a day of picnics and games and perhaps even camping.  For some, it is the first weekend of summer. 

For my brother, a Marine, it is a day to take his children aside and teach them about the sacrifice of others who have gone before him. 


Too often folks equate the military as pro-war.  I don’t see it that way.  Personally, I don’t know any soldiers who want to leave their families, and I certainly don’t know any families who want their loved ones to go to war. 

Sometimes Saintly Nick wrote about this last Wednesday; I highly recommend a visit to read this post.
