|A cemetery in Bangkok, where there are undoubtedly some who've given service worthy of remembering today.|
I know that Memorial Day as it's observed in the US isn't a world-wide holiday at the end of May. There are, however, days to remember the fallen in most every country that's participated in war, so I'm combining those thoughts today and giving a deep bow or respect to all who've made the greatest sacrifice possible by giving their lives for causes their leaders felt were worthwhile at the time.
Out of those sacrifices have come a great many freedoms in my homeland, and I am grateful for each one of them.
May those killed, crippled and the otherwise hobbled by war be at peace today, in their own way, in this world or the next... and thank you.
