Memorial Day

I've seen a lot of war movies:  Mister Roberts, Casablanca, Dawn Patrol, et al. I never did see Apocalypse Now or Full Metal Jacket.  I know war is hell; The Grand Illusion brought that home. But the HBO miniseries "Band of Brothers" helped me understand the sacrifice that men and women of the armed forces have made for us.

So, thank you to all the men and women who have fought and died to defend us -- not so that we can go see "Sex And The City 2" and own an iPhone 4G, but so that we can behave as responsible citizens in our world and in The World.

Speaking of memorials, please PRAY we don't end up watching the Gulf die.

Living in Florida, it stinks to be helpless as we watch the imminent damage from this spill. It seems so out of our hands. Thankfully, it is NOT out of His.
