    Lest We Forget


    We love hero's.

    From Audie Murphy to John Wayne we love hero's.

    The problem is that we keep this iconic view of what a hero is when instead the real hero is the simply the one in despite of all odds, will throw caution unto the fray and join the rank and file of those who would pursue human honor and integrity; traits necessary for humanity's ultimate survival.


    Still, we have waxed calloused and instead of trusting our own hearts we rather entrust ourselves to the vacant words of another.


    For me, I stand against the fray, and say to it "We will not surrender, we will not cease, for I pursue what is good and noble in all of us."


    May God rest your soul in peace Captain Dorner.


    Thank you for your service.
