    This weekend as we fire up the grills it is easy to sum it up as summers opening. It is not so easy to bear in mind all that goesinto our freedom to do so. There are some people who never forget, family members and fellow veterans for example. The rest of us need to be prodded. They gave their lives in places we never heard of-Omaha Beach, guadalcanl,Khe Sahn,Tora Bora, Bagdad, Takrit and Kanduhar. For many of us the very thought of dying so far away is unspeakably horrible. For thosewho defend us it is unthinkable not to be willing to do so. The soldiers who go there deserve our most profound grattitude. They are putting it all on the line every day. While there is no doubt that we cannever equal the price paid by those that did not make it home. We can certainly honor what they gave by celebrating all the reasons this proud nation is worth fighting for. So as we packthe picnik baskets on Monday remember also to pause and reflect onthe the enormus contributions made by those who pay for our freedom. We owe them so much more but a simple thanks will have to do.
