Why we should remember what we remember today
Great Editorial for Memorial Day:
Fly the flag. Wrench yourself away from the TV to tell your children that the reason they are not going to school today is because we are remembering the fallen soldiers. Tell them how, if those farm boys hadn't left their fields, taken their muskets and faced the British army, we might still be a colony. Tell them that if U.S. Rangers hadn't gone up those cliffs at Normandy, into the teeth of the German machineguns, then the Nazis might still be there. That the world, terrible as it often is, could be far worse, and throughout history it was the United States soldier who placed his life between us and the onslaught of tyranny. Remember the fallen soldiers as if they were your father, your brother, your sister, your son. Because they are.
