Remember the fallen
We take a moment every year to pause and reflect on those men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
For this moment We honor two types of people: those who gave all and those who never gave in. These men and women who painted the stripes of “Ol’ Glory” with their essence, and their familes who continued to press forward after their loss. We can honor them by voting, we can honor them in song, or by living our life with a heart of gratitude. America’s sons and daughters fought for our freedom to live free. We must honor them by saying thank you at least. We must put a value on the cause for which they fought and teach the next generation, so they can be prepared if our nation calls. I have lived near a Naval Base and at sunset the flag would be taken down. When it did, people stopped in silence and gave honor not for the cloth, but for which it stands “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all”. The servicemen who render hand salutes know the cost of freedom. They are reminded of friends lost in conflict and those who still serve. Today for memorial day, please remember the fallen , and the reason for this day.
