Wendell on Sacrifice

thinking about the war in Iraq, my dad's service in the U.S. military during 3 wars, the present administration's lack of military service (along with members of congress and much our SBC leadership) and Memorial Day last week...

this quote by Wendell Berry came to mind.

"I think we must be careful about too easily accepting, or being too easily grateful for, sacrifices made by others, especially if we have made none ourselves. "

I just found your blog and enjoyed reading it. You bring up issues close to my heart. I'll be back.

P.S. I'm from Tampa too (and an FSU alum)
