On Memorial Day

It's Monday, which means no exercise of any kind, well except for going to the pool with my niece. I already warned her mom that I don't really swim. I'm much more inclined to slather myself in spf 45, put on a big floppy hat then lounge under an umbrella.
.....

It's the soldier, not the reporter who has given us
Freedom of the Press.

It's the soldier, not the poet, who has given us
Freedom of Speech.

It's the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the
Freedom to Demonstrate.

It's the soldier, not the lawyer, who has given us the
Right to a Fair Trial.

It's the soldier who salutes the flag, serves under the flag and
whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protestor the right to burn the flag.

~Father Dennis Edward O'Brien, USMC

Thank you veterans (and families)!
