9/17 anniversary of Constitution and Antietam
150 years since America's bloodiest day – This Just In - CNN.com Blogs
It's the 150th anniversary of the the battle of Antietam. Nearly 23,000 soldiers were killed, wounded, captured or missing that day. Today is also the 225th anniversary of the signing of the US Constitution in Philadelphia on Sept 17, 1787. This reminds me of how often we take our freedom and history for granted, and how hard people fought to get us to where we are today. To everyone who came before us, Thank You."never bring paws to a gunfight" - Jenna

Amen, brother.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
