Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day.  Today is many things, the artificial start of summer, a long three day weekend, a traditional grilling out holiday, and a day to celebrate troops serving our country.  Being an old hippie pacifist I still respect those who choose to protect our nation in uniform and under arms.  But we are all human.  Too many of their leaders are flawed and our soldiers suffer for it.  Too many stupid wars, stupid missions, stupid plans.  Such waste of brave souls.

Humanity has not yet figured out to end war.  Until it does, these troops are vitally important.  I long for the day when they are not needed.  Until then, I thank them.
