A good day to find someone and say, “Thanks”

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse.” – John Stuart Mill

The second we believe our freedoms inevitable, we cease to live in history and sour the soldier’s sacrifice. Our freedoms – purchased on the battlefield – are indeed “worthy of war.”

And today, with America still at war, it is fitting that we remember the troops currently serving in harms way. Because, as any veteran can attest, just one moment, one explosion, or one bullet separates Memorial Day from Veterans Day. Soldiers currently in Iraq and Afghanistan are fighting for our freedoms today, knowing it’s possible they may never see tomorrow.
