me, beard

(no subject)

"We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives that the nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we do this. But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate--we cannot consecrate--we cannot hallow--this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract."

Whether you agree with the nation being in Iraq or not. Whether you agree with the armed forces or not. Take a moment and reflect on the fact that these men and women who fell in the line of duty, who joined so that you may sleep peacefully at night, aren't coming home.
