Memorial Day

Don't forget why it is that you get a 3-day weekend. That is all.

Re: Memorial Day

My family has 6 names to remember, so I certainly won't forget.

Thanks to all who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom. And thanks for the reminder, Pete.

Re: Memorial Day

O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done,
The ship has weather'd every rack,
the prize we soughtis won,
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel,
the vessel grim and daring,
But O heart! heart! heart!
O the bleeding drops of red,
Where on the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.
O Captain! my Captain!
rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up—for you the flag is flung—
for you the bugle trills,
For you bouquets and ribbon'd wreaths—
for you the shoresa‑crowding,
For you they call, the swaying mass,
their eager faces turning,
Here, Captain! dear father!
This arm beneath your head;
It is some dream that on the deck
You've fallen cold and dead.
My Captain does not answer,
his lips are pale and still
My father does not feel my arm,
he has no pulse nor will,
The ship is anchor'd safe and sound,
its voyage closedand done,
From fearful trip the victor ship
comes in with object won;
Exult, O shores, and ring O bells!
But I with mournful tread
Walk the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.

Walt Whitman

Re: Memorial Day

"War is an ugly thing. But not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made so and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." ~John Stuart Mill~

The right to misspell "definitely" and post awkward sentences on message boards?

And then there's this asshole...
