Memorial Day

22 05 2009

Enjoy this Memorial Day holiday.  At the risk of sounding preachy, don’t forget those men and women who sacrificed their lives for us in the United States.  Here’s a tribute to them.

War is always awful.  Sometimes there’s just simply no justifiable reason for it.  Remember that men and women die in stupid (lack of a better word) wars, too.  I am a fairly conservative guy and consider myself an unabashed patriot.  But I understand that there are times when we should question why we are involved in the wars and military actions our country sometimes fights.  Much of any sort of anti-war sentiment that I might have is motivated by my desire that members of our armed services not die in vain, needless conflicts.  In something of a protest of those types of tragedies, I offer this.
