Memorial Day is about remembering all the fallen fighters that have died for America. I would like to thank all the men and women who have given their lives for us, so that we may live.
I do not agree with the current war, but that does not detract from the people who are doing their job, giving up their lives for a cause they believe in, for people they love. I am humbled by your incredible sacrifice.
With that, I'd like to recommend this poem in honor of Memorial Day:
Cassie & Ty by Erin Livingston (rehosted here, as always right click or just wait for it).
This was downloaded from Erin Livingston's Myspace page - myspace/freerangepoetry, if you like the poem please visit and support her.
I really, really recommend you listen to this poem, no matter what you feel about war, politics, etc... I think she sums it up absolutely perfectly, the feelings that divide all of us, and it brings a tear to my eye every time because it hits just that close to home.
P.S. I heard this poem first on the DSC.
