On this Memorial Day, I stop to honor the soldiers who have given their lives in service of our country. I do not stop to honor war itself. But I pay my respects to the soldiers – those who volunteered to fight and those who were drafted, those who fought in “good” wars and those who fought in wars later deemed “wrong.” These men and women were members of our community – sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, friends. Each, in his or her own way, graced our world.
