Memorial Day

I thought of including a picture for this post but all of them seem to be plastered with American flags. But, Memorial Day isn’t about America it’s not about flag waving, it’s not about feeling good. It’s about loss and remembering that loss.

Thanks to my father and my grandfather, for giving up of themselves to something greater, for the loss of their youth and innocence to war. Thanks to all the other young men and women who did and do the same. Thanks to those who gave everything to a country that rarely deserves the sacrifices it asks of its soldiers.

Thank you. Thank you.

Doesn’t mix well with polite company; his two favorite topics being politics and religion. Would rather be out cycling, swimming, running, or camping. Misspent his youth reading genre-fiction; today, he is making up for it by reading large quantities of non-fiction literature. The fact that truth, in every way, is more fascinating than fiction still tickles him.
