    Honoring Memorial Day

    Spent the day with my family and some military friends. Got me thinking about all those fine kids doing thier best to preserve our freedoms. Also got me wondering --

    Did JWT - John Wayne Taylor ever make it back home? Any word from/about him?

    Resistance is futile, teh Clerus is done. He awaits for the end aknowledging its presence everyday. When it comes he hopes to feel like being in the womb again.
    I am not here at the forum therefore, got nothing more to say and cannot save anyone (me included).
    I know i can resist for a good while, uknown is the value of while. Impermanence might be the only truth to life.
    Bye, peeps

    Nice ttt, ShaolinDan

    With all the vets in the martial community, it's somewhat embarrassing that this thread has lay dormant since 2005. Of course, most of us celebrate this holiday away from our workstations, but that's a poor excuse.

    To the fallen...

    Maybe a better title would be, "Have a reflective Memorial Day"...

    This thread probably gets neglected because we're usually all off today. This year, we've already been off for months. Some of us are laid off.

    Nevertheless, we must honor our vets. Thank you all for your service!

    Fair point TcM. I've changed the title from 'Happy' to 'Honoring'.

    Not to be overly capitalistic, but as always, MartialArtsMart is holding their annual Memorial Day weekend sale. Get 20% off with the coupon code 'memorial20'. Offer expires tomorrow at midnight PST.
