Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day. It is important to remember that this is not a Christian holiday, but a American holiday. We are specifically remembering American soldiers who have died during war.

Today is a day when we set aside our religious and political differences. Irregardless of how you feel about war itself, there is a special kind of respect you should have for those who are willing to sacrifice their lives for others. This is especially true when they die, not only for their loved ones, but for their country. There is honor in that, and that honor deserves respect.

So let us remember, always, what these men and now women have done for us, and let us not have their sacrifices be in vain.
