The Price Of Greatness

"The price of greatness is responsibility."
Sir Winston Churchill

America stands at an interesting crossroads. We have learned that war is hard and costly. (Many us already knew that, but from watching the evening news obsess over Cindy Sheehan, you's think America had never lost a soldier in war before.)

We are hated around the world for having taken our stand. Or is it because we have taken our stand too late?

It is better to be damned for trying than damned as cowards.

We would do well to remember one thing: as long as we exist, we will be a target for someone, regardless of what we do. The question before us is this: do we fight for a better world, or not? It really is that simple. Because there are people out there who have pledged their lives to make it worse. We either confront this evil or become it.

My choice has been made. What about you?
