Clue/Question:  True compensation for everything they did is impossible, but we can . . .


(A very nice tribute on this solemn day of remembrance, guys.  For all who served our country you have our deepest admiration.  For all who gave their lives in service to our country you have our undying gratitude.  Soldiers don’t start wars.  Our so-called leaders do.  Peace.)   —   YUR

    I see you deleted my comment. This puzzle was fun and easy. Have fun wordsmiths.

    No, Richard. I wouldn’t do that to you. It’s right there as a comment to whatever cryptoquote you were reading.

    In honor of Memorial Day, I ran farther than I ever have in my life (about 12 miles). I ran in the freezing rain to the cemetery to pay my respects to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice. I stopped by the replica of the Vietnam Vets’ Memorial in the cemetery, so the jumble picture hit home today. I also personally thanked every person I saw in uniform as I was running. I was cold, sore, and tired, and yet, I still feel like it wasn’t enough. Thank you to those who have served and are serving.

    I’m impressed, Amy! But, where is it that you were running that it was *cold*?

    I visited a cemetery, also . . . but by car. And, I had to have the AC on! And, then I took the wife for ice cream!

    Wow, Amy, that was a wonderful tribute. The Jumble puzzle was also a fine tribute. My husband and I rode our bikes 6 miles to the beach on a paved trail from Allaire State Park to Manasquan, NJ. Then we rode back after lunch, so the total was 12 like you. However, we did not visit a cemetery, but we did discuss along the way the many flags waving in the sunny breeze, and I felt very proud to be an American and have the freedoms we have because of the sacrifices of brave men and women who have served our country!

    I live in Montana, where it’s cold through June. Love this state, though–the most beautiful one, in my opinion. 🙂
