Memorial Day: Remembrance and Honor

It’s not about an automobile race in Indianapolis, it’s not about the start of the summer barbeque season, it’s not about a three day weekend, it’s not about parades, it’s not about heros, it is about the sacrifices that were made in the past, the sacrifices that will be made this day, the sacrifices that will be made in the future, on behalf of all of us.  Let us honor and remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, let us honor all those still among us who have stepped forward on our behalf so that we may enjoy freedom and the richness of life.

Resolve to bring peace to all people, and resolve to restore the integrity of our system and the protections of the constitution.

    Yes and yes and yes. This holiday and July 4th are fraught with meaning. It is not about hot dogs and shopping, it is about the sacrifices of real individuals so we can enjoy our freedoms.

    Well said. Sorry I arrived late to pay homage.
