I know lots of readers come here first thing Monday morning to read the regular “Memes That Made Me Laugh” post. That’ll be coming just after 9 a.m.: but there’s something more important than memes, and that’s the people we commemorate today.
May the souls of our honored dead rest in God’s peace; and may those they left behind receive what comfort they may from a grateful nation. Even if the nation as a whole is forgetting its debt to them, we who served remember them, and we will keep their memory alive as long as we are. May others take the torch from our hands when the time comes, and keep it aloft.
