A Thought for Memorial Day – Peace is the Death of War

A thought on Memorial Day from my good friend and fellow veteran R. Lee Wrights:

Peace is the death of war. Peace is not the opposite of war. Peace is not the absence of war. Peace is the death of war. Peace happens when enough people decide they have had enough killing. Peace happens when enough people say, "I am not at war." 

If Americans truly want to honor all those who have died fighting for our nation, and the sacrifice of their families and loved ones, we’ll take these words to heart.
