Happy Memorial DayToday I have a request for anyone who reads this and will pass it on to anyone I speak to. Actually, I have 3 requests for you.
1. Say a prayer for the men and women who have died preserving our freedoms.
2. Call a friend, coworker, family member who served and is still here and thank them.
3. Read "This We'll Defend" by Major K. and then say another prayer for the people like him who are willingly leaving their families for us. It takes a special kind of person to go somewhere where it is 116 degrees in the shade today; for the explicit purpose of getting shot at for the continued preservation of our safety and freedoms. God Bless them one and all.
If #3 doesn't cause you to give thanks that you were born or got to move here you may want to consult a shrink. You are out of your mind. And I don't care if you disagree with Bush's methods in the GWOT, reading his post should make you thank your lucky stars.
