Happy Memorial Day

It's Memorial Day once again, ladies and gentlemen.  I've struggled to find the words that would be proper to honor the men and women who have given their lives for our freedom since America was founded.  What do you say, though, to someone who gave their life so you could continue to live yours?  What do you tell the family members of someone who made the ultimate sacrifice for literally everyone?

Nothing.  There's nothing to say that will be able to make amends for that level of commitment to your fellow man.  The only thing you can do is thank the family of the fallen soldier, and hope that your thanks doesn't sound hollow.  

Keep our fallen soldiers in your prayers as you celebrate the long weekend, dear reader.  They deserve nothing less.

All right...so I can't end this post on a complete downer.  I rounded up this rather joyous video for you all.  Try not to cry:
