Memorial Day 2007

Yes I know I am a day late, I wasn’t near a computer till last night and then I was too worn out.

Anyway, as usual I watch one of the classic war movies on Memorial Day. Last night it was Patton with George C. Scott. There is one quote that is attributed to Gen. Patton that sums up memorial day for me: “It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should
thank God that such men lived.” — General George Patton

He’s right, we shouldn’t mourn the dead. We should instead thank what ever cosmic force we believe in that such men were born to protect us.

Tam over at View From The Porch posted a picture that also struck home this year.

I remember, and I thank God every day.
