Duty is, then, the sublimest word in our language.Do your duty in all things. You cannot do more. You should never wish to do less. -Col. Robert E.Lee, Superintendent of USMA West Point, 1852
Slightly off topic but - I was in the area this morning and stopped by the McGavock Cemetery. No matter how many times I visit it's always a sobering experience. I think it's the small area with the headstones in linear formation and the knowledge that this isn't the aftermath of a multi day battle but about an hour of violence late one evening to veteran troops that knew much better and followed through anyway. Every stone marks a hero.
