Armistice Day

God gets called on to do a lot of stuff about wars. But Dick Cheney's Arlington speech includes an especially unusual request --

May God keep us truly grateful for everything that you've [veterans] done.

The risk apparently is that other priorities might distract the rest of us not just from serving in wartime, but from remembering, without God's help, that other people were willing to do it.

UPDATE: God is helping Cheney with apostrophes --
