This Memorial Day: We are Honoring the Fallen Soldiers...

This Memorial Day: We are Honoring the Fallen Soldiers. May I say, we should do this all year around, not just today or should I say once a year. These were our true Heroes, they never made it home to enjoy our Freedom.

“This is the day we pay homage to all those who didn't come home. This is not Veterans Day, it's not a celebration, it is a day of solemn contemplation over the cost of freedom." –Tamra Bolton

 

I have been saying this message for decades. Some listened and learned, others did not. I still get emails with the headline: Happy Memorial Day. I also get greeted with the same message. I just politely smile, and it tells me something about that person. If it is an email, I just shake my head and mumble a few choice words.

 

  • "It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God such men lived." –George S. Patton

I have often quoted this message from one of my favorite Generals. Note to self, I should go back on my older posts and see how many times I repeated his message.

  • "Those who have long enjoyed such privileges as we enjoy forget in time that men have died to win them." –Franklin D. Roosevelt

 

The above quotes about Freedom have always resonated with me. So, this Memorial Day I would like to thank those men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice so I can be home eating, drinking and enjoying my life with my pets and Diane.

I agree that this should be done all year round, people should be admired for good deeds, as well as held accountable for bad deeds, haha.

Good morning, Endre. I'm familiar with all the quotes you featured except this one and I love it:

“This is the day we pay homage to all those who didn't come home. This is not Veterans Day, it's not a celebration, it is a day of solemn contemplation over the cost of freedom." –Tamra Bolton

Did you hear that at least two of our Congresspeople sent out tweets wishing Veterans a happy day yesterday?

Kathy Streib  I hope your wish comes true, I am not so confident that will be the case.... having lived here in the US since 1967 I have seen a gradual change over the years and the decades... I blame the media, the teacher and the politicians...Endre

Royal Trails Subdivision keeps up the American Flag year round. If it is torn by the wind or it looks raggedy a resident will notify the HOA and they will replace it as soon as possible. Mary residents here display it year round as we also do.
