Memorial Day

Taking a few minutes today to think about Memorial Day.  While "all gave some and some gave all", a big thanks goes out to all who have served our country.  As the "Army tweet that backfired" confirmed, Memorial Day remembers those who have died in service to our country however many people who served our country are still alive yet war took a part of them that will never be recovered and in many cases, pushed them to ultimately end their lives.  War is Hell, obviously, and now we have two generations of kids (Gen Y and Gen Z) who have never known the US to not be at war.  Here's hoping we can move towards a more diplomatic approach to keeping peace in the world and a less eager approach to sending our young people around the world to fight and die in order to keep the military industrial complex humming along.
