    To quote Faramir……

    War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.
    Return of the King, by JRR Tolkien.

    Thank you to all service men and women on this Memorial Day.
