A Better Way

For Pondering:

Today we memorialize those who gave their lives fighting for our nation in war. Let us give grateful thanks for their sacrifice. There is no national holiday to remember peace pacifists who chose to follow an ancient eccentric rabbi proclaiming, “those who live by the sword, die by the sword.

Today, let us also remember them all, and find a better way.

Gambler

For Pondering:

Life is a bit of a gamble. You’ve got to “know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em, and know when to walk away.”
