Thank you

Today we remeber those who died in uniform. They died fighting for our country. We owe them.

Part of me wants to make jokes/spew hatred at our leadership for the current mess and blah blah blah, but thats just unchecked cynicism that has consumed me since Gore v. Bush. So while I bow my head and wish their souls well, go visit The Heretik for some more eloquent words. And Pandagon, for that matter.

Einstein said, "The pioneers of a warless world are the youth that refuse military service." But I (wish I wasn't a cynical deist or I would) pray for those who don't have that choice; the poor always fill the most flag-draped coffins. I (would) pray for their souls and pray for retribution upon those who sent them to their deaths for... what? I think it starts with "o".

But today isn't about politics or policy or assholes, its about remembering those who fought and died for us. And I will. And I thank them.
