Honoring our Veterans

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

Ronald Reagan said it best:

"In our observances this Memorial Day, we honor the brave Americans who paid the highest price for their commitment to the ideals of peace, freedom and justice. Our debt to them can be paid only by our own re-commitment to preserving those same ideals."

This year we won't be enjoying many of the traditions associated with Memorial Day so please turn your attention to honoring our fallen heroes, they so deserve it.

Happy Memorial Day to you too - I agree that we should spend more time on the meaning of the day rather than as the kick off to the pool season.

The weather always seems to cooperate for celebrations to be had on this day and it's a shame that there won't be gatherings this year.

The pandemic has curtailed many of Sacramento's traditional Memorial Day observations.  But, we still have the capacity to individually reflect on the meaning of this day, and the sacrifice paid so we remain free.

Hi Dorie,
I do hope this day is utilized as a wonderful learning opportunity for the youngsters who may not understand the history of how our Freedoms were earned.  Have a wonderful day.

Dorie even though this year Memorial Day will be celebrated differently than in past years, the meaning of this day stays the same.  I hope you have a special Memorial Day, and find a way to honor those whom we honor today.

Hi Dorie- it is indeed a different Memorial Day. Last night I watched the ceremony from DC which was held virtually.

Good Morning Dorie,

One of my favorite movie themes is war movie. What would a nation become without the brave soldiers who fought in the battlefields? Those courageous soldiers paid dearly for freedom and other noble causes.

Hello Dorrie, I like what Mr. Reagan said. Sadly for too many Memorial Day is just another paid holiday and more people need to truly understand why we have the freedom we do here in America. May people wake up so we can keep the freedom so many fought and died for.
