Others will say it far better, so I'll limit my own comments.
My son, Alex, is the most important thing in my world and, like any father, I'd do anything for him. Endure hardship, risk my life......even lay down my life to protect him. He's my own son.
Today, by the way, is Memorial Day - a day on which we honor the people who gave their lives to protect all of us. And we were perfect strangers.
I can't thank the veterans who gave their lives, but I can remember them....and I can thank those, including my co-bloggers, who offered their lives. Thanks, guys.
