This blog kills fascists. Eventually. It's a process I'm working on. Be patient with me.

For those who served under imperfect conditions, who served an imperfect nation, who experienced imperfect freedoms but considered the promise of this country and the potential of a more perfect and free life for our nation worth paying their lives for, the only reasonable pledge is to continue building a more-perfect union, and to honor the service and uphold the promises made to those who yet live, and also served. Words don't do a whole lot--they mark memorials adequately and sometimes comfort. In the memory of those who gave all, though, words are best consecrated to a promise not to waste life and to always remember what has been lost and can not be returned. And to honor the living for the sake of the fallen, to appreciate what their sacrifice was for.
