Memorial Day - the day we remember all those that died fighting for this country. The one holiday I wish, more than anything, had no reason to exist. But it does.
It seems to be the history of man that old men lose it, and young men die.
It does not HAVE to be that way, and you would think that by now, mankind would have learned that.
If you stop and think about it, nearly every technological advance that makes our daily life easier, nicer, or more entertaining, has its origins in the effort to develop the technology of war.
It's good that we have found peaceful things to do with the technology of war, but if it came to that, I would rather live in a cave than see young men die.
