Remembering doesn’t do the remembered any good, of course. It's for ourselves, the living. I wish we could dedicate Memorial Day, not to the memory of those who have died at war, but to the idea of saving the lives of the young people who are going to die in the future if we don’t find some new way – some new religion maybe – that takes war out of our lives. That would be a Memorial Day worth celebrating.

A Memorial Day Thank You - posted by The Law Office of Ryan P. Smith, PLC.
The Department of Veterans Affairs reports that about one million men and women have died in the military during wartime, including about 655,000 battle deaths. This Memorial Day we honor these brave souls for making the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Better still, honor their sacrifice by performing a random act of kindness or simply thanking one of our current service members. (May 28, 2010)
