Quote for Today, May 28, 2011

“I have never been able to think of the day as one of mourning; I have never quite been able to feel that half-masted flags were appropriate on Decoration Day. I have rather felt that the flag should be at the peak, because those whose dying we commemorate rejoiced in seeing it where their valor placed it. We honor them in a joyous, thankful, triumphant commemoration of what they did.” — Benjamin Harrison

I usually don’t post videos w/front end advertising, but this one is well worth sitting through the short (15 sec.) ad. Hadn’t seen/heard this before – grab some tissues. Will be posting this again this weekend. Encourage you to do the same. Very moving. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJO7lJIxG10
