"It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you." ~M. Grundler

"Valor is stability, not of legs and arms, but of courage and the soul."~Michel de Montaigne

"Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die."~G.K. Chesterton

"They died hard, those savage men - like wounded wolves at bay. They were filthy, and they were lousy, and they stunk. And I loved them."~Douglas MacArthur

It's so sad that so many, beautiful men had to die. Always someone's child,brother,father or sweetheart....And on this Rememberance Day let's hope that we all learn and understand the deep sadness of violence and war.
