Memorial Day

The White House Commission on Remembrance is asking Americans to pause for a moment of silence at 3pm today, Memorial Day. This is in an effort to bring back the sacredness of the day as it was meant to be--to remember those who have fallen in defense of freedom.

Hat tip to Lee Ann who lost her son in Iraq.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
