Again, I'm not debating...share your opinion on your own space.
Today, as with Memorial Day, everyone should take at least a moment to say thank you and recognize the efforts, the time, the loss, and the hope that a soldier has walked through on your behalf, and on the behalf of your children and their generations to come.
I do not believe we serve a purpose in the current War. I believe it's all just a song and dance show created by a greedy government. No, I have not forgotten 9-11, but we are so far from anything that was started there...this current War has no part in that terror then. We are arrogantly pushing through a country that has no use for us or our ways being shared, plain and simple.
That soapbox aside, today you have the freedoms (perhaps few, I admit) that have been passed to you by those who stood in your stead. On Memorial Day we thank those families who have lost a son, a daughter, a father, mother, brother or sister, through every War that has passed and still lingers.
But today we say thank you to those who remain. Those who watched their troop fall around them, those who live with the memories of what they may have seen, what they may have done, and have a first-hand vision of what happened and what it was all for.
No matter what your opinion is about the act of War, or the military in general, today should bring a thank you to your lips and a handshake to one who has served or is serving still. It isn't about the acts that place them there, but about that man, that woman, who has or does now stand in your place so you do not have to.
Agree or disagree doesn't enter into it. It's about how you accept that fought for freedom every singe day...and plain, ordinary manners dictate a thank you in return.
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
