Today's post happens to fall the day before Memorial Day here in the United States.
Since I am an artist, not a political reactionary or pundit, I won’t add to the mountains of opinions, poetry and essays on the benefits/horror/patriotism/valor of serving in our nation’s military forces.

I will simply ask you to take a moment, a few seconds even, from whatever holiday revelry you find yourself involved in. Whisper a thank you to soldiers of conflicts past and present.
Reflect if you will on what has been given since the early days of our nation so that we – you and I - can live our lives under a system of government that pretty much allows us the opportunity to make our own choices about how we live our lives.
Thank you. Thank you so much.
