Memorial Day Thoughts

I am giving some thought to the purpose of this Memorial Day, remembering those who have died while serving in this country’s armed forces.

Memorial Day isn’t just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives. Veterans had the fortune of coming home.

Regardless of the reasons for war, the politics of war, or whether it was right or just, the fact is that many, many have sacrificed their lives in doing so.

This day we reflect on those sacrifices:


 

 
“All gave some. Some gave all.”

“This is the land of the free because of the brave.”
