On Memorial Day Remember & Honor 

 

Let's each of us 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."

"Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it. It flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it."

"May we never forget freedom; it is never free."

Will Hamm good morning, Will. Maybe this year with fewer Memorial Day parties and get-togethers people will take time to think about why we celebrate this day.

Nina 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.

George Souto good morning, George... you are very correct in that the meaning of Memorial Day has not changed because of restrictions... I'm thinking it was actually enhanced. Sorry to have to miss your presentation today... need to take my husband for a post-op check-up at that time.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® good morning, Sheri... thank you. As for Gold Star families... they do live Memorial Day every day... and I fear that because often they are "invisible" to many of us, we are often not aware of their pain and their sacrifice.

Grant Schneider thank you, Grant. I remember as a Girl Scout marching in Memorial Day parades (when it was called Decoration Day) so the meaning of this day was inculcated in me at an early age.

Kathy Streib good morning, Kathy... that Reagan speech sends chills down my back each time I hear it... it never gets old and seems to touch a nerve with almost everyone... and I use it every year in my Memorial Day post for that reason.

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS good morning, Paul... since we became an all-volunteer military the majority of Americans don't often encounter our military people so I think it's important to remind everyone that these people are real heroes and none more than those who gave their lives protecting us. I trust you had a lovely Memorial Day. Happy new week to you.

A wonderful tribute. As the son, nephew, grandson and great grandson of Veterans from WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam, I hold sacred the sacrafices our military make. I love serving my Veterans here in San Diego.

Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor e-Pro, CRS, RCS-D, Vets thanks, Thomas. I am a first generation American... and even at that not one born here... at the end of the day our grandchildren are the true first generation Americans. But that being said, the price paid by generations of Americans (such as your family) to protect our freedoms is by no means lost on me. You have reason to be proud of your family's contribution.

God Bless you Nina Hollander 

Memorial Day 2020 was different, in a way. Many towns around us canceled Memorial Day...CANCELED!!! As if our military men and women canceled their duty!!! We met with resistance from every direction, BUT a small band of veterans ensured there were graveside services with rifle squad and bugler.

Every quote you shared and President Reagan's speech touches my heart. Thank you for remembering our men & women that sacrificed so much.
