Here's something to make you wake up and smell the grumpee. Do I need to reiterate my Emerson quote from Sunday? Somebody isn't paying attention.
See D. Haffner's post on the emcee heckling she and other peace supporters received on Memorial Day.
Crib notes on peace for those with limited attention spans...
When soldiers don't die at war they can be with their families and hopefully die of natural causes at a much later date. This will make for less parades, yes. But, oddly... it seems to make the soldiers and their families happier.
It is an amazing thing, but you really can respect and honor the sacrifice of veterans while praying for peace.
