And so we have another dear comrade of the crisis in which The United States banded together like never before, who has left us.

Various titles and catchphrases have been bestowed upon them for their heroics. I believe it is important that we take the time periodically to remember all of them who have passed the Great Divide. Even more vital should be to honor those who we still have with us, be it now fewer and fewer. What could a few moments sacrifice? To not only thank them for their courage and willingness, but to set aside even a short amount of time to visit and embrace their presence.
