john stuart mill's quote rings true

to our brave young men and women in the military throughout the world, let me say that i had a wonderful thanksgiving. that's right. a wonderful thanksgiving. and why?
to quote JSMills again ( i think i did this last year too)
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

thank you for your service, and thank you for helping keep my family safe. may the cosmic joker skip you the next time he plans mischief.
