Memorial Day 2005

I often remind my family of the truth of these words, and they are appropriate to lead off my site for the rest of this weekend:

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf."
-George Orwell

And for all those whom dare to forget whom to thank for the freedoms we enjoy today; whom elevate themselves to a higher pedestal by declaring their opposition to war anytime, anywhere, for any reason, and to all those in the media who poison the body politic with these sentiments daily, I leave you with this thought-

"War is an ugly thing," wrote 19th Century political philosopher John Stuart Mill, "but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling, which thinks that nothing is worth war is worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature...."
