I think it's important to remember -- especially to remember those who have given their lives in service to our country. The sacrifices made on our behalf are significant, and we should remember that the relative peace and security that we feel right here at home are paid for by the time and the lives of brave men and women who fight elsewhere. Memorial Day is a great time to reflect.
So, as you break out the barbecue and enjoy a holiday from work, take a few minutes to think about how you have benefitted from the service of those who gave all.
I've had a few emails lately asking me when I'm going to post something new. After all, I almost completely missed everything to do with the state legislative session. And there is a budget battle raging. And possibly a rapture coming up.
But I haven't had time. I have a number of thoughts swirling in my mind, but I don't have time to organize them. One of the hazards of being a professional blogger is that my own pet projects sort of fall to the wayside. I am well, my son is well, and Josh finished his Ph.D.
Thanks for your kind wishes and inquiries. I am touched by your concern. And so glad to have such good online friends.
