memorial day. When i was a liberal hippie, back in the day, as they say, i was against the war. not this one. The one in Vietnam. There were those who hated the soldiers who fought in that war, and called them baby killers and worse. Thankfully, I was not one of those. I was against the war, not against the soldiers. I have the utmost respect for the men of the armed forces and always have. So, if you are reading this today and you are free, thank a soldier. the sacrifices they have made to allow you to protest the war, or Bush, or anything else you are passionate about, are worthy of your respect, even if you don't think the government is. So, while you are celebrating this solemn day eating your fried chicken and barbeque ribs and enjoying the day, take a moment to reflect on the reason why you are free to do so. For their sake.
