Memorial Day...Remember...

By
Real Estate Agent with Dirt Road Real Estate SA676002000

For many we remember our loved ones, our neighbors, our friends and those we don't know who served in the military and sacrificed their lives so we may enjoy the liberties guaranteed by our U.S. Constitution. This is truly a Day of Remembrance.

One fact that I recently read was Native Americans as an ethnicity had a greater military participation percentage of 19% compared to other ethnicities with an average of 14% military participation.

For many family members, they do remember the ones lost in wars and military conflicts. My oldest cousin who I never had the chance to meet died in the European theater during WWII. I had a dear older friend who died in Vietnam. My husband who served in Vietnam did see many of his comrades give their lives.

Yes today is a day of remembrance. Unfortunately as George Santayana stated:

“Only the dead have seen the end of the war.”

Today, we recognize the courageous heroes who sacrificed their lives to protect our country and freedom. Thank you to everyone who has served our country, past, present, and future. #thehelpfulagent #home #houseexpert #house #listreports #memorialday #rememberandhonor #thankyou

Hi Leanne,
We need a stronger history curriculum in our educational system, or we're going to suffer the consequences of the younger generations not understanding why so many people lost their lives.

From my experience as a school board trustee back in 1990, unless the teachers know history, it doesn't matter about the curriculum. Also the history books are often in error because the writers have a bias/agenda.

There were special ceremonies all over the country and all with the same intent to honor those that paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.  Trust the actions in your area were well attended.

In viewing posts from social media, it appeared the local event was well attended. We had family in for the weekend and could not attend.

Good morning, Leanne... our freedom in this nation has been "purchased" with the blood of our courageous heroes. May they never be forgotten.

So true and unfortunately many take that fallen blood for granted.
