For Memorial Day

With this being Memorial Day weekend, I received this video from my mom and dad, and although I have this Five for Fighting album and have heard this song many times, seeing the video got me a little choked up.

I'm glad I had a chance to serve my country, but my service pales in comparison to the actual danger, sacrifice, and horror that my father, friends and many others endured to protect the basic freedoms of others.

Irregardless of your beliefs, and convictions, we all enjoy the freedom of holding to our points of view as well as being able to express them because someone else risked themselves and died to give that to us all.

Whether you agree or disagree with our nation's politics and policies is immaterial when you consider the fact that another human being is willing to put their life on the line for those they have never met.

This Memorial Day, at least realize what you enjoy with the knowledge that no one hates war more than a soldier. (As you watch the video, note the images of children put in harms way or worse, put on the front lines.)

After watching the video take a moment to look at the What Kind Of World Do You Want Web Site for information on being a part of the organization's many charities for children.
