Memorial Day 2014

Some things I can't reflect on at the moment, but since today is Memorial Day I can take time out to remember the soldiers who have died in the service to our country. We're not a perfect nation by any means. News of Memorial Day services is mixed with the news of yet another shooting rampage. We have our freedom, but we are still a nation with many people and it's inevitable we will continue to have bad things happen in our country - murder, suicide, kidnappings. Political rants from one side or the other scream for our military to do this, do that, pull out from this place, go into that place, ridicule those disagree - including the servicemen themselves. In the middle of it all are our military guys - quietly going where they need to go because that is what they do, no questions asked, but being prepared to die for it. Today, set aside personal feelings of war take some time out to remember those who have served our country and selflessly paid the ultimate sacrifice for it.
