Memorial Day Weekend Edition - May 22 - 25, 2020

By
Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

 

Monday, May 25, 2020 is Memorial Day, a federal holiday in the United States for honoring and mourning the military personnel who had died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. It has been observed and honored since 1868 for the past 152 years. I hope everyone can spend a few minutes listening to TAPS by clicking the link below in honor of their courage and bravery for peace and freedom.

Below is my photograph using my imagination to accompany creative artist Prince in the meaning behind Purple Rain: "When there is blood in the sky...red and blue = purple. Purple Rain pertains to the end of the world and being with the one you love and letting your faith/god, guide you through the Purple Rain."

--- BORN PRINCE RODGERS NELSON on June 7, 1958 in Minneapolis, Minnesota 

 

 

"An Old Soldier's Prayer" by Lewis Millett

 

(non-denominational prayer focuses on the meaning

and understanding that comes from experiencing war,

and soldiers may find comfort on Memorial Day in

remembering these things they've seen and how they

put their memories in context.)

 

 

I have fought when others feared to serve.

I have gone where others failed to go.

I've lost friends in war and strife,

Who valued Duty more than love of life...

I've seen challenged men become even bolder,

I've seen the Duty, Honor, Sacrifice of the Soldier.

Now I understand the meaning of our lives,

The loss of comrades not so very long ago.

So to you who have answered duties siren call,

May God bless you my son, may God bless you all."

 

Closing thoughts and my interpretation of honoring our fallen soliders on Memorial Day. More than likely, the last sound a soldier hears is the gun's thunderous discharge. No amount of prayers, meditation, or years of participating in traditional Memorial Day parades can bring back the dead or repay those who sacrificed their lives for my freedom. I honor them for their unselfish courage and bravery to do what I could never do ---Patricia Feager

 

"Duty. Honor. Country. Those three hallowed words, reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be."

---Douglas MacArthur

Thank you for the reminder, I know it is a time when my son remembers his fallen comrades, who he will never see again. I loved the pieces you quoted and never realized Prince was that old, thought he was much younger.

Will Hamm - Yes. They understand. I'm saddened that there are no services here either. Also, I just received notification through my Town July 4th festivities is cancelled too. 

Chins up. We'll keep them all in our hearts. My flag is ready for display to show my honor and respect.

Purple Rain!   We always remember the reason for this 3 day weekend. Perhaps with more folks staying at home this year, the reason will take on a more important role.  Thanks for your soulful reminder.

Hi Patricia,
Your post gave me goosebumps and Taps brought some tears to my eyes. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to our fallen soldiers and their families.  This post should have been Featured.

Thanks Carol Williams - This was kind of you. Our American Soliders who sacrificed their lives deserve so much more. They never really ask and graciously accepted whatever was shelled out for them.
