There’s been a lot of talk about the “Gathering of Eagles” tomorrow to guard the Vietnam Memorial from the violent tactics of the American Left as they demostrate in Washington DC.

If you are not able to make it, be there in spirit: Thank a veteran, donate your time to veteran’s group back here at home, visit a veteran’s hospital, give to a favorite veteran’s charity, write someone who is serving in the military …say a prayer.

Let Freedom Ring has much more on the antiwar groups who are protesting for our Great Nation to retreat tomorrow in DC.
I thought this was appropriate for the occasion…
CJ Farnham, from Operation Undergarment, passed on this powerful quote that is as relevant today as it was back a hundred fifty years ago:
“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.”
John Stuart Mill
English economist & philosopher (1806 – 1873)
