A Nation At War

Sometime back - one of Great Satan's super intelligentsia whispered that

"...A society as blessed as ours - its people safe even while at war, prosperous even amidst economic crisis - needs to be reminded that such blessings come at a cost. Memorial Day is a time to remember, but it is more than that

"Good men and women go off to war on our behalf, and some do not return.

"On Memorial Day, we observe more than the fact that people died, but also how their deaths came to pass, and in what cause. We commemorate not just their sacrifice, but the context that gives meaning to both the fate they suffered and the lives they led.

"We recognize the commitment to selfless service that brought them to a fateful day in an out-of-the-way place they had never heard of before they died there

"Memorial Day is not simply about remembering our fallen; it is a day when we should fully and properly express our gratitude.

"America owes them everything.

America has been at war across eight Last Days of May - and longer - and those kids who were 4th or 5th graders at the time are now at the front in a frontless war and may very well pay the ultimate price
