We who live in freedom will always be grateful to those who helped preserve it.


"For love of country, they accepted death."

... James A. Garfield


Freedom is not free. Freedom comes at a cost... in the sacrifice of life and acceptance of death. We are uniquely free in the United States of America because there have been many throughout our history who were willing to sacrifice their lives and accept death to protect our freedom. 


"A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself."

... Joseph Campbell


Below, I've posted one of my favorite Memorial Day Tributes by Ronald Reagan. As President Reagan said "words cannot repay the debt we owe."  This Memorial Day speech never fails to move me. The message is simple, but powerful: Honor, Sacrifice, Valor, Freedom Is Not Free, and We Should Never Forget.


"It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived." 

     ...  George S. Patton


In the spirit of remembering why we observe Memorial Day and why we are able enjoy this long weekend holiday in the first place, please take a minute to remember and honor those who gave their lives for our great country. Also, take that minute to remember that freedom is not free and has been paid for with the blood of the heroes who were willing to sacrifice their lives for us.


"Our nation owes a debt to its fallen heroes that we can never fully repay, but we can honor their sacrifice."

... Barack Obama




"It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived."

     ...  George S. Patton


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

... Minot J. Savage 


"Above all, we must realize that no arsenal or no weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women."

... Ronald Reagan, First Inaugural Address, January 20, 1981



Let us observe this Memorial Day in memory of many and in honor of all. Thank you to all who have sacrificed for our freedom. Thank you to God that heroes like you have lived.


May God Continue To Bless America!

God Bless America
