In the United States, today is Memorial Day, which is a national holiday in which we honor people who have died while in military service. My father and his three brothers served in World War II, and I always think about them on this day.
But, since my readership is international, I would like to honor all those who have died defending their countries. During my lifetime, I have always hoped we might "make love, not war." But then, I was a college student during the 1960s.
Still, my thoughts and prayers today are with all of those who have lost people they loved while in military service.
