Memorial Day

A day when we remember, a day when we rightfully honor, those who have sacrificed so much so that we can enjoy those precious gifts that the Founders bequeathed to our care some 225 years ago.

We usually think of this in terms of those who have died fighting for and defending our country and it is proper and appropriate that we do so, for the price they paid to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity was to give up all those things for themselves so that we, we argumentative, vain, impetuous, loving, sharing and kind people that we all are at various times could enjoy them for better or worse.

But we must remember that we need not always look to the graveyard for those we need to honor and thank. Sacrifice in defense of our Liberty does not invariably lead to death, for did not the Founders also pledge their fortunes and their sacred honor when they stood against tyranny, when they stood against those who would deny others their basic rights of free expression?

Thus today we join with many others listed here and here and here and here and here and here among many many others (that I apologize for not listing) in standing up and saying that, no, we will not let this sort of assault go unanswered.


You know what, I’ve been working on this in fits and starts this morning and I just finished reading Patterico’s story in Sis’s post. Nothing I can say will have the barest portion of the power of that.

Darkness at noon.

That’s what we are fighting.

    Not all battles are fought with firearms. This front of the Global War On Terrorism* requires sunlight. Lots and lots of sunlight.

    You go, bloggers!

    *: Screw President Zero and his “Overseas Contingency Operations” — terrorism is alive and well within the confines of the United States of America.
