Day of Remembrance

On this Memorial Day, “thank you” seems a deeply inadequate phrase to express the debt I and we all owe to the men and women of our armed forces who have given their lives in service of this nation. While enjoying the extra day away from work, I urge everyone to at least take a moment — 3pm local time is recommended — to consider those who have fallen, and the great, imperfect, glorious, flawed and free nation for which they gave their lives.
