Today is a day of rememberance, as I'm sure you're aware. You may already be sick of the tributes, or think it's all just too maudlin.
Well, tough beans. Bear with me for a little while, yeah?
My best attempt at recounting the day is here. Nothing of that memory has changed.
But a lot has changed since that day. Some for the good, some for the bad.
Instead of falling into the muck of arguing over what we like or don't like about the day, the government, the military, the changes that have filled the last five years, and all of that, simply take some time and pay some honor in your own way to the fallen dead.
Don't politicize it. Don't blame. Not today. Let today be a day without politics. If you insist on making such statements in the comments, I will delete them.
Just for today. Let's try to be better than our normal selves. Those who died deserve that.
