Did you remember to take a moment at 3 p.m. today? I didn’t. So I will take a moment now to honor all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, Greenies, et al.

Take an extra moment, please, for the more than 4,000 lost in Iraq. (Not to mention the innumerable souls whose lives have been irreparably changed by the war, including military families.)

Count your blessings and thank (your deity here) that you live in the United States of America.
