Honor the fallen heroes

Please take a moment, this Memorial Day, to read this article by John Hayward at Human Events.

A short sample:
We are at war because liberty is an intolerable provocation against tyranny. Freedom is born in battle. A million different commands to kneel have rolled through human ears. Some crash down like thunder. Others are seductive promises, delivered with gentle whispers, which betray little hint of the angry demands that will inevitably follow. Liberty has but one call, and it cannot sing in harmony with those other voices. They are well aware of its power. All tyrants fear the day their people answer the call… the day their Minutemen appear. They naturally prefer silence, so their commands can be heard clearly.

But, as they say, Read The Whole Thing.
