Good morning Joe readers! I won’t be blogging today as it is Memorial Day, the day we here in the States devote to remembering those who’ve fought and died for our country. This day used to be a very big deal in our culture, but it isn’t so much anymore, and that’s a sad thing. These days, in which the Self is king, it’s fashionable to think of those who’ve died in wars as victims, not as heroes. But there’s a cure for that. Just browse a few Medal of Honor citations. You’ll find thousands of stories of people who put their lives at grave risk for the sake of others. That human beings are still capable of that sort of courage and selflessness is something else worth remembering in this, our cynical age.
