This quote of Colin Powell's from 1998 is powerful.
"The world remembers well that several times in the course of this century, the United States was at the height of the world, the height of power. After World War I, or World War II, or even at the end of the Cold War, we could have imposed our will on the world but we didn’t. All we ever asked for was the opportunity to raise up our former enemies, and to get back to the business of peace and democracy. The only other thing we ever asked for was enough land to bury our dead. We never wanted anyone else’s land or sovereignty over anyone. No other nation on the face of the earth possesses that kind power, possess that kind of power today in such abundance." - General Colin Powell speaking at West Point on Sept. 15, 1998

Today, we honor the memory of those who gave all in order that we might live free. I encourage you to attend a Memorial Day ceremony today (there will be one at the Fort Gibson National Cemetery at 2:00pm, for those in the Muskogee area - more events listed here).

God bless our soldiers, veterans, and their families on this day of remembrance.
