Memorial Day 2013

"I have never been able to think of the day as one of mourning; I have never quite been able to feel that half-masted flags were appropriate on Decoration Day (Memorial Day). I have rather felt that the flag should be at the peak, because those whose dying we commemorate rejoiced in seeing it where their valor placed it. We honor them in a joyous, thankful, triumphant commemoration of what they did."
- Benjamin Harrison

Honor what they did by having a great life - "earn this".  Love your family, love your neighbors, cherish the risks and rewards of liberty, and never let yourself get away with a moment of self pity.  

This is the least you can do.
