freedom has a flavor the protected will never know.”

    “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 Stuart Mill

    Kiss a vet today. And don’t forget our civilian veterans, such as those who served in the Peace Corps. They volunteered to go into Third World countries, alone and unarmed, to bring the lessons of American prosperity to the less fortunate. Thank you, Ellen, for your selfless service in Liberia. I could not be more proud of you.
