Quote from Don Mayer of SmallDog Electronics. I love what he says here because regardless of politics, we all want peace and it doesn't happen without tremendous work by everyone.
Memorial Day is celebrated to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our freedom. While the parades and celebrations are tributes to the brave men and women who have fought to protect us
from tyranny, a lasting and real commitment to peace is the highest honor we can pay to soldiers. In these dangerous times, it is more important than ever to honor those who are on duty right now sacrificing so that we can enjoy a free society. We may not all agree with the policies that have put our sons and daughters in harm's way, but honoring their service, sacrifice, and commitment is the duty of all citizens.
"How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes! " - Maya Angelou
"Destruction is not the law of humans. Man lives freely only by his readiness to die, if need be, at the hands of his brother, never by killing him. Every murder or other injury, no matter for what cause, committed or inflicted on another is a crime against humanity." - Mohandas Karamachand Gandhi
"True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost." - Arthur Ashe
"It doesn't take a hero to order men into battle. It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle." - Norman Schwarzkopf
"When we say "War is over if you want it," we mean that if everyone demanded peace instead of another TV set, we'd have peace." - John Lennon
