Happy Memorial Day

No puzzle today due to the holiday.

This is a day to honor all who died fighting for what they believed in, as well as those who stood with them. It is a day to set aside politics, motivations, and global strategies and to focus on each individual man and woman who made the ultimate sacrifice, sharing the pain of their families and friends. It is a day to remember that opposing a war is not the same as opposing the soldiers who fight it. It is a day to say thank you; most of us cannot even begin to imagine what you have been through. Above all, it is a day to pray for peace, that someday these sacrifices will no longer be necessary.

Thanks for listening.
