While giving thought to the purpose of Memorial Day during the weekend we honor it, remember those who have died serving in this country’s armed forces.
Memorial Day isn’t just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives. Some veterans had the fortune of coming home. Others did not.
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.
Memorial Day we reflect on those sacrifices:
“All gave some. Some gave all.”
“This is the land of the free because of the brave.”
