In Memoriam - Honoring Our Heroes

No matter what my personal feelings are about war, past or present, I have a deep respect and awe for those who have sacrificed their lives in service to our nation.

May their ultimate sacrifice never be forgotten.

My heartfelt sympathies go out to those they have left behind.

I hope for a day when humanity will find a better way to dispel our disagreements and live in peace and love.

Given my personal feelings about war, I have been reading the Memorial Day posts of others with a bit of chagrin...wondering what I might write that would be respectful yet not belie my beliefs.  You have done that beautifully here, Robbie.  Thank you.  Lisa  :-]

It can be hard to separate personal feelings about what you believe is a wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time from the deep respedt for the men and women who have to fight it. You've done it beautifully.

I, too, feel so much respect for the people who are brave enough to go fight in a war.  May our government develop enough respect for them, and for the so-called "culture of life", that it doesn't send young men and women off to fight and die in unnecessary wars, but uses them only for defense.

I totally agree!  I don't support war, but I am thankful for those who have died for my freedom.
