In honor of Memorial Day, I thought I’d share an appropriate memory:
I can remember singing this with friends, particularly on one occasion as we drove up to the mountains (I grew up in California where there actually were real mountains). I don’t recall any of us talking about the lyrics so I’m not sure if it was anything more than a popular song on the radio to most. I, however, remember being struck by the notion that people used violence to win peace. I still am. If you know a soldier or a veteran, give them a hug and thank them for their service. And then let’s insist that our government “bring ’em home”.
