They shall not be forgotten...

“When you go home, tell them of us and say, for their tomorrow, we gave our today” - John Maxwell Edmonds

Today, let us all take a moment to remember those who gave their today for our tomorrows.

One need not agree with the present conflict, or any conflict at all, to pause, reflect, and honor those who have fallen.

Let us take today for remembering and honoring the sacrifices made.

But let us not stop there.

Let us also take today as a starting point. Let us endeavor to abolish the world that demands such sacrifice of our best and brightest.

Let us today beat our swords into plow shares.

Let us today work towards a future free of conflict.

Let us today endeavor to show that Horace lied when he said: Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori (It is sweet and right to die for one's country)
