    "Lest we forget" -- these three simple, but very meaningful words are a reminder to always remember the sacrifices made for our freedom. No Greater Love (ngl.org), initiated the National Moment of Remembrance established by Congress in 2000. At 3 p.m. on Memorial Day, Americans are asked to pause wherever they are to honor those who have died for our freedom throughout history.

    Let us never forget. Remember to pause and say a prayer (if that's your thing) at 3 p.m. today.

    I wanna personally thank Spazz. He was in WWI. His story begins in nineteen-dickety-two. He had to say dickety because the Kaiser had stolen the word twenty. He chased that rascal to get it back, but gave up after dickety-six miles. Now, I'd like to digress from my prepared remarks to discuss how he invented the terlet...

    He served in WWII but he was a total asshole.
