Let's not forget

Yes, it marks the first day of summer.  Yes, it's a day for barbecues and the beach.  Yes, it's a day for family and fun.  And yes, some might call a post like this trite and clichéd.  To hell with them.

All we enjoy today we enjoy because of the sacrifices made by others.  So please, take a moment to ponder that truth and be grateful.  It's a debt we'll not ever pay back.
