Remember Those Still In Harm's Way
Something unusual from The Community Alliance, and this blogger in particular -- a moment of silence.
Let's take some time this Memorial Day -- as we bronze at the beach and put another burger on the bar-b -- to reflect upon those who selflessly gave their lives in service to their country.
And let us consider, as men and women in the armed forces continue to place themselves on the front lines, in Iraq, in Afghanistan, and in hotspots the world over, our role as citizens, a whole lot safer than the folks in uniform but perhaps no less selfless, in giving of our time, our talents, and our energies in service to our community.
Another week dawns at The Community Alliance blog. Keep on reading, and give a thought or two to actually writing. Your comments, your opinions, your Guest Blogs are not only welcome, they are necessary if the message of community is to be given both meaning and moment.
Let us hear from you. Make some noise. Send us an e-mail.
As we often paraphrase (before too long, the quote will have been attributed to us), "In the end, we will remember not the words of community's enemies, but the silence of its friends."
Stay safe. Don't drink and drive. Buckle up. And don't forget the sunscreen!
