Three things in military service are important. The first is to exemplify honor. The second is to exemplify honor. And the third is to exemplify honor.
This is my response to the Trifecta weekend prompt, in which we were asked to play around with the following quote:
Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.
We want you to follow the same general structure of the above quote. Feel free to change the subject–tell us what’s important about coffee or houseplants or whatever you’d like. Or else change up the modifier–instead of telling us what’s important, tell us what’s sexy or overrated or pernicious. Your last three lines should closely echo James’s, giving us the same answer three times.

About the Photos and Prompt Response:
We recently visited Washington DC and spent a little time at Arlington National Cemetery (not too much time, mind you, because cemeteries creep me out a little bit.) The shear number of headstones made me think about the price of my freedom.
Acknowledging their sacrifice isn’t about condoning war. Do I think all wars have been necessary? No. I would love it if there wasn’t a such thing as war, but I’m not living in fairy tale land. I know that won’t happen. I do respect the men (and more recently, women) who believe freedom is worth dying for.
