Even though i had to work today, it was a good day of rememberance. Going through our small city smelling the grills and friends and families that were getting together from back yard to yard. I couldn't help but try to rememeber what the today represents. Musch more thn the start of summer, or the much needed 3 day weekend. It is time for all of us to reflect on the cost of freedom. And honor those who have paid that price for us. With that i leave you with this letter wriiten over 150 years ago to a Mrs. Bixby.
I have been shown the files of the war department. That you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle. I feel how weak and fruitless any words of mine should attempt to beguile you of the frief of a loss so overwhelming. But i can not refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of a republic they died to save.
I pray our heavenly father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement and leave you only the cherished memeory of the loved and lost and the solemn pride that must be yours, to have laid such a costly sacrafice upon the alter of freedom
Yours, very sincerely and respectfully,
Mixmaster Jones Capone is the Operations Manager of Power 99
