Memorial Day 2007

I've been trying to think of something to write about Memorial Day this year and nothing comes to mind.

As I often do, I'll borrow someone else's words.

John Donne
Meditation 17
Devotions upon Emergent Occasions

"No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were. Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee..."


Our thoughts and prayers are with our brave men and women overseas and with victims everywhere.

I found something. I wrote (obliquely) about Cheney's nonsensical speech before the West Point cadets. What a ethically challenged tool he is. What a terrible folly has caused 3455 men and women to be killed in combat for nothing. I'm feeling very ashamed today.Good quote though. You can always count on Donne.

I didn't hear Cheney but I did hear part of the Bush speech. The hypocrisy turned my stomach.
