"Americans used to say where there's a will, there's a way. Nowadays, it's where there's a pill, there's a way out." - - Burnt Toast

In Memory. . .

Today, I visited the War Memorial building in downtown Jackson to pay respects to the brave soldiers who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our common values and beliefs in America.

The inscription above the front columns reads, "Peace shall come to those who strive for peace."

The inscription on the crypt reads, "Time will not dim the glory of their deeds" and "May this symbol stand guard over the ideals and purposes for which gallant Mississippians suffered and may it serve as inspiration to us to shield forever the fragile quality of liberty."

The faces of sacrifice.

God bless the United States and her mighty military that protects us from tyranny.

UPDATE:  Borrowed this link from the blog And So it Goes in Shreveport and as she states, "if it doesn't bring you to tears, you're made of stone."  Amen.
