Memorial Day: A Day To Remember, A Day To Honor, A Day To Say Thank You

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

 

On Memorial Day We Remember, We Honor, And We Thank You

 

I hope each of us will pause for a moment today to honor the memories of those who have given their lives for our country and our cherished freedoms, as well as to reflect on the sacrifices made by the families of the fallen.  On this Memorial Day, I hope each of us will take the opportunity to acknowledge their sacrifice, pay our respects and express our heartfelt gratitude.

 

In the words of President John F. Kennedy: "A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces, but also by the men it remembers, the men it honors."  Today, let's honor the brave men and women who gave all and families and loved ones left behind. And as we do so, let's remember our own commitments to live and serve with passion, joy and enthusiasm.

 

"The brave die never, though they sleep in dust, their courage nerves a thousand living men."

Minot J Savage

 

"For love of country they accepted death."

James A Garfield

 

"We don't know them all, but we owe them all."

Unknown

 

 Video: Speech from Ronald Reagan, 1985 at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial

"What they gave us is beyond our powers to repay."

Nina, touching tribute I take to heart.  I never served in the military but respect so well those who have & do.  It is a day to remember all that have given their lives well for this country.

Hi Nina Hollander - That snippet from President Reagan brought tears to my eyes. Vietnam War was a truly hell on earth, and it goes with all war. But I remember those stories first hand which makes that war more intimate.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® good morning, Sheri... I feel the same way about the Viet Nam war... probably because I was in college during the height of it during the Johnson administration and because I knew so many who were liable to get drafted during that time. It's always felt a bit like the war of my generation.

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS good morning, Paul... heroes don't all "wear one face." I heard VP Pence's speech yesterday at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and he spoke about heroes from several wars... it was touching and it was riveting... because in many ways these were truly "unsung" heroes.

Nina, Reagan's words always stick with me. We can never repay but, it's our duty to honor and remember. We went into DC yesterday to see a couple tributes and it was very moving. Freedom isn't free and I just hope that message continues to be spread to the younger generations.

Joan Cox thanks, Joan. I haven't lost anyone to war either, but my family has lived through horrific wartime conditions so I'm not totally immune to the impact of war on people's lives.
