Many of you have probably been watching, as I have, a lot of coverage this weekend of our troops, past and present. The television has been awash with stories of their heroism, their sacrifice and the sacrifices made by their families at home. It is always stunning for me to be slungshot back to a position of actual perspective, to have my "Why do people have to honk their horns ALL the time around here?" complaints and grievances shown for what they are. Television can be great at this, if it tries to be, and watching "60 Minutes" last night, as well as a few other shows, including "Gene Simmons:Family Jewels", for chrissakes, brought a lot of things home, once again.
It is within that context of a weekend of well deserved and much needed memorializing that I came across this video, posted at the Crossfit site by a guy in uniform. I thought it was a fine addition to everything I saw this weekend, and I hope you do too.
