Honoring the Living

Posted: Fri, 11 Nov 2005 13:07:08 -0800


The primary difference between Veteran's Day (today) at Memorial Day is that today is about living veterans while Memorial day honors the dead.

Alan at E tenebris, lux dormiens offers some solemn thoughts on the men and women who have fought for us and are still among us.

Some of these soldiers were those who joined the war because they had an belief that they should earn the freedom that their forefathers had given them. For that, they have earned more than we could hope to reimburse. What little we can give, however, should be a life of august comfort, not of abject poverty by slowly eroding benefits.
