Remembrance by the numbers

There is not a remembrance of former [generations]; and will be no remembrance of those who live now by those that are at the last. Ecc. 1:11 YLT

As citizens we owe it to those who have lost their lives on the battlefields in the name of the United States to remember their names, to value their lives, and to grieve their loss. And as we remember the fallen, let us include the 22 veterans who commit suicide each day, the 5.5 million disabled veterans. including the 1 in 5 suffering from PTSD, and the 57,849 homeless veterans,  These men and women have lost the lives they used to have before they fought. To remember is to push against the tide of selfishness and apathy and to count the costs of war.

Lord, inspire us to do more than remember.
