Thank You

To those of you who serve - to those of you who love someone who does -

Thank you!

This is one of my favorite quotes:

"It is tempting to deny the existence of evil since denying it removes the need to fight it." - Alexis Carrel

Thank you to those in the Military who never run from evil, but run towards it. You run towards evil that has bearing on our daily lives only in the abstract - you run towards evil to make an Innocent's life better. You risk your own, knowing what you risk to lose here at home - your families; your wives, your children.

Thank you does not seem enough - but with each thank you in a restaurant, with each first class seat given up on a plane, with each Veterans Day and Memorial Day and Fourth of July, when the flags fly and she is so beautiful; when the entire Nation says in one voice, "Thank You", may it begin to fulfill a debt we will never be able to pay.

Again - Thank you!
