Archives-- Special Installment for Memorial Day Weekend 2006 (May 26, 2006 -- May 29, 2006)
May 26, 2006 through May 29, 2006-- Memorial Day Weekend.
We pause on this Memorial Day to join in this refrain to those who gave their all to us so freedom we'd retain.
We pause on this Memorial Day to join in this refrain to those who gave their all to us so freedom we'd retain. For darkness they confronted in preserving freedom's light, we owe them more than we can pay for giving more than life. But lives they gave endure today in hearts and souls and minds of we who drink from freedom's cup the fruits of freedom's vine. (Editor's Note-- To the right is a video expressing these same sentiments. It will start playing when this page opens (or whenever it's reloaded or refreshed). Depending on your browser, it may begin replaying whenever you return to this page after viewing other, similar material described below, in which case you can press "pause" or "stop" to stop such re-play.)
Memorial Weekend is not only a suitable time for honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice for us, but it's also a suitable time to thank those who have demonstrated, and are demonstrating, their courageous willingness to risk making the ultimate sacrifice for us. Therefore, from today through Monday, May 29, 2006, this page will be dedicated to serve both purposes-- to pay honor to those who made the ultimate sacrifice and to thank those still willing to face such risks for us and our posterity.
From whence do such heroes come? For what should we thank them? How should we thank them? Each of us must find his own way to answer these questions. Here are my thoughts on the subject in the form of a song I wrote titled, "Thanks In Our Name For Deeds In Our Name":
Thanks In Our Name For Deeds In Our Name
farms in the country, from cities and towns,
Several sound/video "demo" versions of this song in several sizes for several connection speeds are at http://PoliSat.Com/Thanks.htm. The version that plays by clicking the image above is highly compressed for dialup (approx. 1.7 megabytes). If you want to play a slightly larger, slightly less compressed version (approximately 5 mebabytes), use this link: http://PoliSat.Com/TION4DIONat150k.htm. If you want to play substantially less-compressed version, use the following link (the file size is nearly 9 megabytes): http://PoliSat.Com/TION4DIONatHQS.htm. None of these compressed versions even come close to doing justice to the singing talent of the vocalist, Brad Bennett, who graciously sang it for recordation in a non-studio setting to allow us to use his vocal rendition as a "demo."

Also, because there are a number of quite moving tributes to our troops available on other sites, I've included links to them below. Viewing each of them during the course of this Memorial Weekend would be well worth your time.
