Meditations on Memorial Day

In gratitude to those who serve and have served our country...

"All we have of freedom, all we use or know -
This our fathers bought for us long and long ago."

~Rudyard Kipling, The Old Issue, 1899

"Better than honor and glory, and History's iron pen, was the thought of duty done and the love of his fellow-men."
-- Richard Watson Gilder
