I have no kin (military or otherwise) buried in the greater Seattle region to honor with flowers today. Instead I will honor their sacrifice in the traditional mode- BBQ and baseball viewing. Things that I can enjoy thanks to their efforts.
I know that things are not the way they should be in America today, but America is the greatest dream. Something that we should work towards every day; a goal based on the foundation that liberty is worth dying for.
I hope you can celebrate in a similar manner, enjoying the plenty available in America, while remembering the fallen soldiers who gave their lives to protect our borders, wealth, and ideals.
