Veterans Day

This thread on TSW has links to many troop-support organizations.

Remember, it's only because of the military that the United States (and most of the civilized world) has lived in peace and freedom for so long that some people have actually managed to forget why the military is necessary. It is a very old truth: Si vis pacem, para bellum.

This is what I love about TSW and the people it's brought into my life (if only virtually): in so many spaces, you and I might find only the things we disagree on to talk about and it would make us adversarial.

And then we'd never be able to see the other's side of what we disagree about.

Does that make sense? I mean, TSW is about finding common ground and because I've found common ground with you there, I was able to calmly consider what you said on the abortion thread, even though it's not what I think.


Anyway. I'm babbling. I just wish we could all be Gerbils.

Too true. Real courtesy and respect forthose with different views is sadly rare in our polarized society.

I think Veterans Day is something we do agree on.
