I'm writing about Memorial Day today since I will be totally booked Monday for Memorial Day ceremonies. This year I want to leave you with 2 quotes and challenge each of you to ponder each one deeply.
The first is attributed to Georgetown Washington;
"The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by our nation."
The second is attributed to Eleanor Roosevelt;
“Lest I keep my complacent way I must remember somewhere out there a person died for me today. As long as there must be war, I ask and I must answer, was I worth dying for?”
These are two very poignant quotes for me and now I hope you.
