Thank you to both of my uncles (who read this blog) for your service, keeping this the land of the free.

We may not all agree on politics, but we can all agree that we have the finest, bravest, most honorable military in the history of the world.

Thank you to all troops past and present who defend freedom here and abroad, and helped free the oppressed from tyrants and evil.

This poem reminds me of vets.

'The Angel of the Night'
by Dave Grossman
Fear not the night.
Fear those who walk the night.
And *I* am he that walks the night.

But only evil need fear me ...
and gentle souls sleep safe in their beds...
because I walk the night

That is one of my favorite poems, and it reminds me of the sacrifice people make all the time. We are safe because of those who protect our borders, who watch over our streets, who do what most are afraid to do.

"People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf"
