To those fallen

Memorial Day. Now that's something to take a moment of silence. To me it's a day when I remember those fallen in past wars. I have one relative from close family who died in the Vietnam War--Randy Rainville. Today, to me, is remembering Randy and all of the others who have given their lives doing what they thought was right for our country. Blessings to them and their families. They were the "great" protectors.

I'm not fond at all of war and my hope is that someday all nations will come to agreement and work together. I've included this quote from Eleanor Roosevelt that gives a sense of my feelings:
When will our consciences grow so tender that we will act to prevent human misery rather than avenge it?
