Memorial Day 2010

What words could possibly be adequate to express gratitude for the sacrifice of those who died that I might enjoy the freedoms of my life in this beautiful country?  I am sure I do not have the skill to sculpt mere nouns and verbs and adjectives into art worthy of my debt to the men and women who have given their lives in service to their country, nor do I know what I could possibly say to those families who have exchanged a blue star for a gold one.  All I can do is remember, and promise that someday, should we be blessed with children, that I will teach them to remember, as well.
