Memorial Day

Never forget the sacrifice they’ve made no matter where you stand on the subject of war.

  1. I found this quote to put into one of my character’s mouths, and it seems appropriate on Memorial Day.

    “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 Stewart Mills John Stuart Mill (20th May 1806 8th May 1873), a British philosopher

  2. I’ve actually read that saying before. It’s well done. The price of freedom isn’t free.
