Memorial Day...Service, Honor, and Sacrifice
It has been refreshing to see so much written about what Memorial Day is about...not the barbecues or time off...or trips to the beach...but the lives given while in service to our country.
A man's country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle. George William Curtis
Those were lost lives who would never get married or grow old and play with their grandchildren. There were dreams that would not be fulfilled.
This Memorial Day, let’s say a prayer for those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
Let’s strive to live our lives in a manner that honors those who gave their lives for us.
Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it. it flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it. Unknown
