Slow on the Trigger, but Resolved in the Mind

Apologies for being so tardy to express my thanks to America's veterans. It goes without saying, doesn't it?

Well, no, unfortunately it does not in these times. It was right, therefore, for the President to have called, as Lane Core quotes, for a full week of recognition.

Some gave their lives — others their innocence. Citizens give their gratitude, and we scribblers of notions give our pledge not to let die in the mind what was preserved through muscle and heart and backbone.
