Memorial Day 2008

Over 650,000 US combat deaths since the start of the American Revolution two hundred thirty-three years ago.  We honor the memory of their sacrifice tomorrow, those who lost their lives knowingly and unknowingly, willingly and unwillingly.  Giving them a few minutes remembrance once or twice a year is not enough:  We would honor them better by not squandering their lives in the first place.
