Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
- Alfred Lord Tennyson

OK, it's not so hot
My first thought was wow:
But then I remembered there are hotter places:
I can wear shorts and a T-shirt when it gets hot. I spend my days in air conditioning - FOB Borepatch, the car, the office. I can head over to the pool for a dip if it gets too oppressive. I can crack a frosty bottle of hoppy goodness.
Yeah, it's not so hot here after all.
Keep our men and women in uniform in your thoughts and prayers.
Come home safe, and soon, and victorious. Some of us appreciate the sacrifice you - and your families - are making.
