Fun? Yes... but paid for by the sacrifice of others.
Never forget what this weekend is about. It's not just about beer, brauts, and gaming. It's about remembrance and honoring those who gave their life so you can enjoy beer, brauts, and gaming. People like John Finn.
So... when you are gaming on MW2, change your clan tag to a branch of the US Armed forces. You'll find me rockin' USAF. Have fun, enjoy your life. Afterall, they didn't sacrifice their lives for you to be somber all the time. They did it so you could be happy... and free.
John Finn, a Medal of Honor recipient for his actions during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, salutes at the groundbreaking ceremony for the USS Oklahoma memorial on Ford Island in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, in 2006. Finn, the oldest Medal of Honor recipient from World War II, died May 27 at his San Diego-area home at age 100.
Take a day to honor them back.
Blogging is not something I truly considered ever doing. It's not that I don't have a lot to say, on the contrary, I'm full of too many thoughts. I've never felt a real need to share them with people I don't know from a hole in the wall.
So, what's changed?
Truth is, I don't know. But what I plan on pontificating about will range from thoughts on gaming, sports, movies, politics... really whatever is on my mind at the moment. Don't be shocked if I wax poetic now and again.
