"A silly idea is current that good people do not know what temptation means. This is an obvious lie. Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is…. A man who gives in to temptation after five minutes simply does not know what it would have been like an hour later. That is why bad people, in one sense, know very little about badness. They have lived a sheltered life by always giving in."
- C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity, “Faith” (via auta—i-lome)

And they who for their country die shall fill an honored grave, for glory lights the soldier’s tomb, and beauty weeps the brave.” - Joseph Rodman Drake

sadly they didnt die for their country, but for the will of the government.

I sorry but did you speak to each one of them, seconds before they died??

I lost several good men and women. We did not fight for presidents or politicians. We fought for our brothers and sisters to the left and right of us.

You don’t know us!
