As we celebrate Memorial Day today — most of us with the day off from work — we are certain this holiday weekend has even more meaning than it has had in past years.
America again has found itself in a war, but a war unlike any we have fought before because the enemy is tricky and struck in our own home. And while we have made the enemy suffer, enemy forces are still out and our war will continue.
The war is not against one country — it is a war against an idea that it is just to kill innocent people. That is terrorism, and the war to stop it must continue.
Wars of any kind come with a heavy price. American soldiers and our allies have died for the cause and today, as we honor those who paid the ultimate price, we now must think about the most recent fallen heroes. They are the ones who had the courage to go halfway around the world and do battle with an enemy that threatens our way of life.
