I was overwhelmed by the kind and thoughtful and personal responses to yesterday's post, and I want to say a little more about life and not feeling so alone and all those things.... but today is not the day.

Today is for this. Not for the politicians who play self-indulgent games of Russian roulette with the fate of the world, but for the ordinary men and women who voluntarily face injury and death, compelled by a personal sense of duty, loyalty and community. And because what we forget, we are doomed to repeat.
