Indeed. My thoughts as well!

There has never been an occasion where a people gave up their weapons in the interest of peace that didn't end in their massacre. (Louis L'Amour)

"To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors, is sinful and tyrannical. "
-Thomas Jefferson

I was listening to former FEMA Director and radio talk show host, Michael Brown, and he told this story on air tonight.

While he was the FEMA director (during the President George W. Bush administration) a former Soviet Union army general had been appointed to the equivalent emergency director position in Russia and the two were meeting and then going out to dinner. The Russian general requested they could stop by Arlington Cemetery and so Director Brown had his security detail drive them there.

As luck would have it they arrived at the Changing of the Guard ceremony. Brown said the general snapped to attention and gave a perfect salute...and Brown spied a few tears coming down the general's cheek.

The general invited Director Brown to Russia to visit their national military cemetery and several months later he did just that.

Even former enemies can unite in remembering their fallen.
And so they should. Honorable death in battle knows no sides.

(I cry at Arlington Cemetery, too.)

I couldn't do it. The moment the bagpipes lit up my eyes flooded and I couldn't catch my breath.

Soon, but not now. Got to work up to it.

God Bless America, God Bless out veterans.
