During the Salute, some kid is goofing off crying out faking like he was shot. But it immediately struck me that most veterans killed in action were teenagers, just kids. This kid has the right idea. Out of the mouths of babes and all that.
I was upset that this year the kids were not allowed to place flags at the tombstones out of respect for their classmates and friends.
I’m heading up to the cemetery right now. It’s a good and holy thing to pray for the dead.
