What memorial day really means – and some perspective…

On the op-ed page of the NY Times today were the following incredible sketches done by a POW of the Japanese during WWII. For those arguing about torture, it might serve them well to remember exactly what our enemies do.. (not advocating anything, but simply giving perspective).

But this is what so many Americans have experienced and to that we owe them our undying thanks. To anyone that complained about John McCain’s service, this day should have made you ashamed (just as the Republican attacks on John Kerry sickened me).

I would have posted this earlier, but I left my house this morning before the paper was delivered to take a special Memorial day ride up to West Point, and stop to watch a small town parade where we got to applaud veterans from the last 65 years.
